Alcântara, Ajuda and Belém

Lisbon of the Discoveries. The Empire and Overseas.

Two different eras featuring different protagonists. A more remote past and a more recent past. The stories of the places and protagonists also told by the facades’ tiles.

Further info about our tour

In Lisbon’s industrial history, Alcântara has had a prominent role and during this tour we will see abundant testimonials of that past. However, being the history of these western neighbourhoods so ancient and rich, we will find much more, namely monuments, palaces, centennial olive trees, maritime tradition’s traces, rural memories. And this diversity is also patent in the tiles…
