What to Expect

Each tour is customized according to the interests of the participants.
You’ll visit St. George’s Castle, and Alfama, Lisbon's oldest quarter. The city has a notable maritime past, and was a center of world-wide exploration in the 15th and 16th centuries. This was the Age of Discoveries and the Golden Era of Portugal, when Lisbon was transformed into the opulent center of a vast empire.
Some of the wealth resulting from the maritime expeditions was used to build magnificent monuments in a unique Portuguese style. The extravagant Manueline architectural style is best typified in the Jerónimos Monastery. Other of these monuments can still be seen, especially in the area of Belém.
