Guided tour through the hidden and closed churches within the historical center of Lisbon. Discover some of the most beautiful churches like Menino de Deus Church and the Convent of São Pedro de Alcanatara.
What to Expect
The churches represent the richest built heritage of this city. The best architects were chosen for their construction and the best painters and sculptors were chosen for their decorations. But some of them are hidden inside buildings or closed to the public… join this tour to discover these amazing secret places.
The tour begins with one of the best views of Lisbon (the viewpoint from São Pedro de Alcantara). You will be introduced to the development of the Christian presence in Lisbon during the Roman period, after the conquest of the city during the Second Crusade, during the Inquisition period and after the earthquake.
You will cross the entire historical center, between the Chiado area and the castle, discovering all the secret churches, some of them located inside civil buildings which are now banks, offices and shopping malls.
