3 - Tours & Sightseeing | Lisbon Walking Tours

Take a walk through historic Lisbon from the Rossio Square and experience the Portuguese capital's wealth of cultural heritage. After meeting your guide at the Dom Pedro IV statue, learn about the restoration of Portugal’s independence from Spain in 1640. Marvel at the intricate Neo-Manueline architecture of the old Central Train Station and hear about the Carnation Revolution of 1974 as you visit the Carmo Square, the very place where Portugal’s old dictatorial regime fell after 48 years. Continue with the elegant neighborhood of Chiado, with its old cafés, boutiques, theatres and bookstores. Wander through the old maze of small squares and narrow alleyways of the Moorish neighborhood of Alfama, where time seems to have stopped a thousand years ago. Stop at an old wine bar for wine tasting and a tapa, and top it up with Lisbon’s Sé Cathedral, the city’s oldest church, before going back down to Praça do Comercio, Lisbon's most emblematic setting.
