Most important sites & Monuments in this private tour
Lisbon has been declared by Lonely Planet as one of the 10 best european cities to visit. The city has a very rich and wide cultural, gastronomic and historical offer. Plus the perfect weather, generally shiny and with mild climate.
This private walking tour will kick off in front of Lisbon’s cathedral. This building is one of the only that survived to the earthquake that the city suffered in 1755. Its construction started in the XIIth Century, but it was not until the end of the XIVth Century that it was declared the Cathedral of Lisbon.
You will then walk towards Alfama. Alfama is the oldest district in the whole city. It is mostly known for being the birthplace to Fado, a traditional portuguese music style that has been declared World Heritage by UNESCO. Alfama is a delightful maze of narrow cobbled streets and ancient houses, which lead up the steep hill from the Tejo Estuary to the castle.
While walking through the cobbled streets of Alfama, you will starting going higher, until you will arrive to the area where the Saint George Castle is located. The Castle had to be restored in 1920, due to the earthquake in 1755. You can enjoy stunning views of Baixa and the Tagus river from the battlement of the castle. The excellent vantage point of Castelo de Sao Jorge high above the River Tejo made it a prime defensive position and the site has been used since the Roman era.
The tour will start and finish in the same place where it started. It has a duration of 3 hours total. As said, it is possible to adapt the tour to your own interests, here we showed you an example of what we think would be a very good way of getting to know the portuguese gastronomy. Remember the tour is totally adaptable, and we are here to help you organize it on the best possible way.
