What you can expect

Join me for through the district of Belém and let's discover together all that Lisbon is about. Explore Lisbon's neighborhood and delve into its history and past.

You’ll be amazed by the uniqueness of both the Manueline style (also known as Portuguese Late Gothic) architecture and the magnificence of Mosteiro dos Jerónimos, and with Torre de Belém, a bulwark in the defense of coastal Lisbon.

We will taste the mouth-watering Pastéis de Belém (a Portuguese egg tart pastry), still baked according to the secret Catholic monks’ recipe. Next, we take a walk across the beautiful gardens of Praça do Império (Empire Square), built for the Portuguese World Expo in 1940 and I'll tell you more about its history.

Near the river, we’ll contemplate the majestic Padrão dos Descobrimentos (a monument to celebrate the Portuguese Age of Discoveries) where 33 significant figures of Portugal over 900 years of history are sculpted in limestone alongside this giant monument.

We won't miss the UNESCO-listed Belém Tower, another Vasco da Gama tribute before we head back to your hotel where your tour ends. let me know if there's something that you would like to add to your itinerary, I can customize the experience for you.
