Lisbon was an important centre of European espionage and counter-espionage during the Second World War. British, Americans, French, Italians and German intelligence agents rubbed shoulders together with exiled European royalty, refugees, secret police, captains of industry, bankers, prominent Jews, writers and artists.
Your guide will take you around the city center and old quarters giving you a social and political insight of the country during the WWII focusing on Lisbon’s role as a SPY NEST. You shall hear stories of real spies and double agents that walked through these same sidewalks in Lisbon and getting to know what connections to Lisbon have Garbo and Trycicle or even the films Casablanca and Gone with the Wind.
