What will you find in this tour?

In this tour we will explore that relationship walking down the Tagus riverbank, strolling through emblematic places like Commerce Square, the Arsenal, Pink Street and the Ribeira market. Sailors, merchants, prostitutes and spies will fill our journey with stories, legends and anecdotes.

Our footsteps will take us to the station of Cais do Sodré, where we will take the train that will lead us to Belém, epicentre of power during the most glorious era of Portugal but also the place of the country’s most famous monuments, such as Belém Tower, the Monument of the Discoveries and the Jerónimos Monastery. Through them, we will get to know the birth of the first global maritime empire, the fascinating adventures of discoverers like Vasco de Gama and Afonso de Albuquerque, and the huge amount of wealth they brought with them to Lisbon, causing the birth of a new own art style: the Manueline.

Apart from all this, there will be time for all the glories of the present. Belém is the proud birthplace of one of Portugal’s finest delicacies: Belém custard tarts. Finding them has become a real pilgrimage and thousands of people visit the famous patisserie. Accompanied by our guides you will be able to try this gastronomy wonder without waiting in line for hours.

Come with us to Belém and be amazed by the splendour of Portugal’s Golden Age.
