A Walk Tour in the city of Lisbon with the Historian Lourenço Pereira Coutinho

The Experience

This isn’t a traditional guided tour as you are probably used to, but instead a conversation with a passionate Portuguese Historian, Lourenço Pereira Coutinho, born and raised in Lisbon, that will be walking with you in the city of Lisbon for 2 hours, sharing an outdoor lecture on different curiosities of the History of Portugal, while you visit some unique places in Lisbon:

- You will start this walk in the Castle of São Jorge, bringing you back to the medieval times (1147)

-Then you will walk to Terreiro do Paço and be immersed in the time of the Portuguese Discoveries (1500)

-The circuit continues in “Baixa Pombalina” to discover a bit more about the 18th century in Portugal with curiosities like the Inquisition time, the age of the Gold from Brazil and the Lisbon Earthquake in 1755

-Your walk follows to “Chiado” and lead you to Eça de Queirós period (one of the greatest Portuguese Literature names in 19th century)

-You will then stop for a coffee and a pastel de nata in a small cozy pastry shop Castro Pasteis de Nata (Lourenço's favorites)

- Your walk will then end in “Quartel do Carmo” bringing you to a more recent part of the Portuguese history, the revolution of April 25, 1974
