About the tour

In the roman times, Rossio Square was the location of the Roman circus of the city of Olissipo, the former name of Lisbon. We will follow the path of Rossio over the centuries, finding out what it became the Christian occupation - the location of Lisbon's biggest hospital in the Middle Ages and also of the headquarters of the Inquisition. The earthquake of 1755 changed its looks but the square kept its size and memories of the past throughout. Meeting point for European refugees during the II World War, the arrival of foreigners will influence habits and bring a couple of new delicacies into our cafés.

Meet 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!

As always, charming, hugely knowledgable, well-prepared and engaging. I'm getting to know the 'lasagne' of Lisbon's layers!
