Start your tour whenever you want, alone or with friends, far from tourist groups...

During this audio-guided tour of about 1.5 hours, you will start at Largo das Portas do Sol, where an esplanade with a magnificent view of the Tagus River will lay right before your eyes. Learn how Lisbon was born and listen to the stories of its evolution since the arrival of the Phoenicians, a people of merchants and navigators who arrived 3,000 years ago! Then, get to know Saint Vincent, the official patron saint of the city of Lisbon. Then continue your way to enter the heart of the Alfama, a real labyrinth with its steep streets, hidden plazas and staircases that go off on all sides. But don't worry, we'll guide you all the way.

In this historic district, you will come across small hidden treasures like the interior of this charming patio. You'll also witness the Muslim influence in the neighborhood: orange trees, patios, colors, etc. Then, admire the beautiful Church of Saint Michael before coming across two small panels that will allow you to discover the history of Fado and its famous singers. You will then continue your way where other stories, anecdotes and unsuspected places will be waiting for you.

A short stop at a terrace or a shop, a small craving? Resume the tour whenever you want, right where you paused it. It's impossible to get lost. The guide provides clear audio directions, and a map indicates the directions to follow in real time. And if you take a wrong turn, the integrated in-house location feature will get you back on track in no time! Customize your itinerary as you wish, relax and enjoy a fun and entertaining tour of the Castle district, at your own pace.

As all good things must come to an end, you will end your visit at the famous Plaza de Comercio in the Baixa district, one of the largest and most beautiful squares in Europe.
