What to Expect
Discover when Lisbon was the real-life “Casablanca” on a 1.5-hour walking tour through its World War 2 history.

During the war, neutral Lisbon was the uneasy home to refugees and German Gestapo offices, sharing the same space and keeping a watchful eye on each other. Starting at Carmo Street in the historic city center, you will see where the German propaganda office was located, and where wealthy refugees from across Europe would shop for luxury items that had became scarce back home.

Continue to Rossio Square, and learn how the refugees would gather in street cafés that were like caravans meeting around the well at the oasis. Spies from every nation would listen into their conversations, while double agents spread false rumors.

See the grand hotels where every chambermaid was on the payroll of both the Allied forces and Nazi agents, and walk up Liberty Avenue, following the refugees ever-hopeful quest for a ticket to America.
