Lisbon - Maritime and Naval Legacy

If you appreciate maritime and port heritage and identity, the city of Lisbon will have something for you. Indeed, quays, docks, streets, squares, churches, fortifications, monuments, and museums are all places of memory of the extraordinary maritime destiny of the city.
Of course, Lisbon is the nearby Atlantic, the Tagus and its incomparable light. The old riggings, customs, beliefs, melodies, and food traditions, all linked to the Tagus and the sea, are still strongly rooted in the culture and way of being of the Portuguese. This opportunity to “Discover Maritime Lisbon and its Secrets” off the beaten track, will allow you to better understand and enjoy the maritime heritage and history of a city more than 2500 years old.
