Welcome to the World and life of Fernando Pessoa in Lisbon, one of the most famous international Portuguese Poets. Besides Luis Vaz de Camões he was the best, influenced completely the Portuguese poetry during the XX Century.

You will see locations where he uses to go like Cafe a Brasileira, Bertrand book Shop, Martyrs church where he was baptized, the house in São Carlos square where he was born, the Abel Pereira e Fonseca tavern where he used to drink his wine and Café Martinho da Arcada where he uses to getter with other intellectuals.

Thank you. I enjoyed this trip so much. My son served a 2 year mission in Kisbon and so did my now daughter in law. Seeing Lisbon helped me to see where they were. What a beautiful, clean city. Thanks again for the history too that you talked about. Very interesting.

I love Lisboa. Cities are not only about the buildings, but also about people. Thanks for introducing Pessoa (I discovered him few years ago when I visited and stayed in Poets Hostel). Good idea to play some music as we walked along. Would be nice to hear some poems as well. All the best. Keep on "inventing" extras for the tours.
