About this Event

Baixa and Chiado are the romantic neighborhoods in Lisbon and have been the meeting point of famous artists, writers, poets and politicians since the XVIII century. They are still considered the heart of the city and most cosmopolitan areas with its imposing buildings, historical monuments and crowded streets.

These were the areas that suffered the most with the Great Earthquake of Lisbon in 1755 and were almost totally rebuilt in the XVIII century, becoming the first earthquake proof city in Europe.

You'll learn a bit more about the rich history of Portugal, the end of the monarchy, the change of the capital to a foreign country, the Jewish massacre, the longest dictatorship in Europe, the revolution that changed the country and the many aspects of the Portuguese culture.

From our meeting point at Praça do Comércio (Commerce Square), you’ll see place like the City Hall of Lisbon, Augusta Street and its famous Arch, Santa Justa Elevator, Rossio Square, São Domingos Church, the Jewish memorial, the Square and Monastery of Carmo, Camões Square and much more.
