This walking tour will take you from the “Ribeira das Naus” (old port and shipyard of the Discoveries period) to the Military Museum in Santa Apolónia, formerly the Army Arsenal and Artillery Museum.
Along the way, we will observe the military heritage of the city. The walk along the quays and the former Navy Arsenal, will be an opportunity to evoke the prestigious past of the “Armada” and its sailors. We will then walk beside the Roman walls, enter the Moorish and Christian fortifications, and evoke the military conquest of the Crusaders. Then we will consider the military influence on the city evolution, from the 12th to the 19th century.
Finally, we will visit the rich weaponry and artillery collection and the magnificent Baroque rooms of the Military Museum (about an hour and a half’s visit). We will thus put our visit into context and gain a better grasp of the military history of Lisbon and Portugal.
