There are many ways to discover downtown Lisbon, the Baixa!
This time I suggest a tour around different churches, their architecture and decoration. They will be the excuse to make you understand the city´s development, the Lisboners traditions and the contrast between the old districts and nowadays Lisbon.
We will start our walk near the Cathedral and stroll through the old district of Mouraria and Rossio Square, the heart of downtown, to end up in Chiado quarter.
5 churches are included: The oldest in the city; Another one that remains untouched prior the earthquake; The one that lisboners are most devoted to; One more you will be crushed by the amazing restoring works after a terrible catastrophe and, finally, a church in Chiado quarter displaying outstanding roof paintings.
You will be forever impressed by the monuments I’ll show you, the stories I’ll tell you and the places we’ll stroll by.
This is not a religious tour.
4 hours walking tour in downtown area including 5 different churches.
End at Chiado quarter.
Fees depending on the number of participants.
