Full description
Meet your guide and set out along the sloping streets of the Bairro Alto on a journey to the many ancient burial grounds. Look beyond the land of the living on a walk among the tombs and mausoleums of Lisbon's cemeteries. Get a unique sense of the art and monuments that illustrate centuries of history and culture. Visit small, almost private, cemeteries and some larger-than-life edifices as your guide tells tales of the locals' beliefs, richly romantic expectations of the afterlife, and the social meaning behind the changing artistic styles on the memorials. Throughout the journey, get a sense of the diverse makeup of Lisbon's people and culture across the ages. See the plots created for the non-Catholic deceased at the German and English cemeteries. Walk up the hill to the Prazeres Cemetery, the largest in the city, with grand structures that host the remains of the rich and famous.
