What you can expect

Join me through the district of Belém and together we can discover all that Lisbon is about! Explore Lisbon's local neighborhoods and delve into its history and past.

You’ll be amazed by the uniqueness of the Manueline style (also known as Portuguese Late Gothic) architecture and the magnificence of Mosteiro dos Jerónimos, site of the tomb of famous explorer Vasco da Gama. It's also where the explorer and his men spent the night in prayer before heading to the Orient.

You can taste the mouth-watering Pastéis de Belém (a Portuguese egg tart pastry), still baked according to the secret Catholic monks’ recipe. You can stroll across the beautiful gardens of Praça do Império, built for the Portuguese World Expo in 1940 and I can tell you all 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.

You can't miss the UNESCO-listed Belém Tower, a bulwark in the defense of coastal Lisbon, and another Vasco da Gama tribute before we hear back to your accommodation where I will drop you off.

Let me know if there's something that you would love to add to your itinerary, I can customize the experience around your wishes!
