Full description
From beautiful squares to charming shopping streets, the Baixa district is one of the most enchanting in Lisbon, but it was completely destroyed in the devastating earthquake of 1755. Completely rebuilt, on this 3-hour walking tour you will learn the history of this fascinating part of the city, and how the pragmatic rebuilding plan changed the shape of the entire city center.

The tour takes you on a journey through the history of Baixa, between the two most important squares of the historic center, Rossio and Praca do Comércio. Find out how things were before the great catastrophe, and walk through the enchanting streets, lined with traditional shops, historical cafés and neoclassical architecture.

See the art deco shop fronts, the swirl of black and white tiles on the squares, and the lively dance of locals, street vendors, and tourists.
