About the tour

Did you know that all of Lisbon’s downtown has been destroyed by a huge earthquake on the day of All Saints in 1755? We will start our tour at the Commerce Square, gateway of a city turned to the river for centuries, and we will find out how this square is related to the end of monarchy in Portugal, even if it was home to the royal palace way before that. We cannot miss checking out the post-earthquake buildings, meant to be inserted in a new, well organized and functional city, opposite to its former labyrinthic layout. Let us find out what would happen to these buildings if we ever had another earthquake!


Meet Ines

Ines

Born and raised in Lisbon, I have very fond memories of my childhood and adult life here. I became a national licensed guide at the age of 22, after a degree in Tourist Guiding. I have had the chance to meet wonderful people from all over the world, and I was lucky to be able to travel abroad several times. I also worked as a tour manager mostly in Europe, and decided to settle down in my home city in 2017, becoming a full time local guide in Lisbon and surroundings, so I could learn even more about it and share it with you! I consider myself a storyteller that likes to weave the connections between history, people, heritage, nature and food. I am looking forward to welcoming here, whether virtually or in person! If you are coming to Lisbon soon, contact me for information on my private walking and minivan tours. Cheers!

I did not enjoy the tour because the sound was terrible. I left after 2 minutes. You need to fix the sound system or the sound feed.
