Það sem verður gert
Discover Lisbon in the company of a specialist who is passionate about its history and culture. In this experience I’ll share my knowledge about architecture of the old city, highlighting the importance of its convents in the urban consolidation and their historical contribution to the traditional Portuguese sweets and pastries. Our meeting point will be at miradouro of S. Pedro de Alcântara, one of Lisbon's most iconic viewpoints. The route will include visits to some of the most important historical buildings of the old city and the tasting of Portuguese traditional convent sweets. Starting at the hill of Bairro Alto, we will proceed to Carmo's square where we will discuss the repercussion that the earthquake of 1755 had in the convents of Lisbon. Right after, we will take a short break and taste the tempting conventual pastries that I have selected for you. With the batteries recharged, we will cross downtown Baixa towards the castle hill to explore the streets of the Alfama neighbourhood, one of the oldest in Europe. We will end this tour by visiting my favorite church, one of the most impressive in Lisbon, which includes the roof top - with spectacular views of the Tagus river - its cloisters and museum.
I’m an architecture and art Historian, and PhD researcher with professional experience in heritage study in public and private cultural institutions. I have been living in Lisbon all my life, but the city continues to amaze me every day. I’m an enthusiast about architecture and in the history behind every building and historic site Lisbon has to offer. Following my experience as a college professor, I always try to make my walking tours a captivating experience, framed by a narrative that should be open to dialogue and conversation.
