We will start our tour at the Commerce square, Lisbon's main square facing the Tagus river, and we will find out how it changed through the centuries, especially after the big earthquake of 1755.
Walking through the well laid out downtown, we will find out more about its anti sysmic structure, its history from the Roman times until today, and how the downtown was and still is the go-to shopping area for several traditional articles, and how can we distinguish local authentic historical shops from others.
Orientation, tips on where to eat and a bit more about our gastronomy will make this tour a great introduction to our culture but also a good pre-trip planning tour!
Meet Your Guide
Lisbon & Me
Hello! My name is Inês and I have been a licensed guide in my beautiful country since 2008. I have specialized in Lisbon and its surroundings in the past few years and I can say I found my true calling: guiding travelers and sharing my passion for our culture, history and gastronomy. I find travelling and meeting new people makes more tolerance, opening a way for a more peaceful world. I am loving to share my knowledge and love for my country virtually, and I look forward to meeting you next!
