Hey! Our Question was, can we get a deep understanding of Lisbon in just Half a day? Yes we can. We will do to the most important key spots of Lisbon in our van, having a conversation about its most famous Stories in a relaxed morning! I will give you a booklet with our stories and illustrations, and a map to keep you oriented through the whole trip! First we will go to the highest (and best) viewpoint of Lisbon, Miradouro da nossa Senhora do Monte, were we will speak about the origins of city and some keys moments and characters of its history! After we will drive through the city center into the forest of Monsanto to its viewpoint, where we can have a 360º view of the city and where we can see the Tagus River (where we pay a tribute to one of our characters, the first Portuguese Woman to vote, in 1911 ! ) Then we will go through the Monsanto Park all the way to Belém, where we will try the most famous Portuguese Custards, "Pastel de Belém" and see the famous Belém Tower, the riverside and its Gardens. Then we will give you the opportunity to visit the Monastery of "Jerónimos", one of the greatest Architectonic monuments of the Manueline age, that celebrates the sailors achievements in the 15th Century! We will then end the tour with a nice lunch and leave you back in the city center with all the Stories we shared! ( You will have free Wi fi :)
Hey! I'm Dinis, I was born in Lisbon and I'm an artist/designer. I like to have open and honest conversations, to know new stories and to share my own. But that doesn't mean that I like to talk a lot, silence has its part on a good conversation. I'm far from being an historian or a philosopher, but I really enjoy to learn and talk about how things were before, and try to connect and understand why/how things are today. That's why I decided to share these Portuguese stories (including mine) with whom is travelling to Portugal and discovering our culture.
