Itinerary

Step 1Obidos - Its history

Inhabited since the Paleolithic mainly because its excellent location ( by the sea and a Lagoon ) the Phoenicians here were as well as the Romans.

The first Portuguese king, D. Afonso Henriques, conquered Obidos to the Moors, belonged to the defensive pentagon (of the five castles), from the center of the kingdom, idealized by the Templars.

The huge earthquake of 1755 made the village feel strong, knocking down parts of the wall, as well as some temples and buildings, and altered unfortunately some aspects of the layout and the Arab and medieval.

Step 2Obidos - It´s weddings

Obidos as a used has a wedding gift from D. Dinis to his wife D. Isabel, the village became part of the Casa das Rainhas, only extinct in 1834, and most of the Portuguese Queen passed through it, leaving great benefits.

D. Catarina orders to build the aqueduct ( which still exists today ) and fountains. The administrative reform of D. Manuel I gives to Obidos in 1513 a new Foral, being this very intense in urban requalifications.

Step 3Lisbon - Belem

Belem or Bethlehem a district to the west of central Lisbon, a must of Lisbon that combines historic monuments, fascinating museums and very attractive gardens, all of which line the cooling waters of the Tejo Estuary.

The place where of Lisbon’s shipyards and harbors, and from here Portuguese 15th century explorers discovered the sea routes to India, Africa and Brazil, commemorating this glorious past, funded by the vast wealth that flowed into Portugal from the colonies.

Time to visit the “Jerominos” Monastery from the 16th century, as well as the Belem tower this lovely fortress and the explorers monument.

Step 4Lisbon Historical Neighborhoods

Lisbon is defenitively one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. Its historic neighborhoods with narrow streets, alleys and belvederes between the districts of Alfama, Castelo and Mouraria, Bairro Alto, Chiado, Bica and Baixa, presents its visitors with a surprise at every corner.

We want to you to understand the differences between the two as well as the Baixa de Lisboa in our tour.

Step 5Lisbon " Baixa"

Lisbon downtown, also called Baixa Pombalina, for having been built by order of the Marquis of Pombal, following the earthquake of 1755, formed by a set of straight and perpendicular streets organized on both sides of a central axis consisting of Rua Augusta.

The buildings have a similar architecture, with commercial ground floor and upper floors for housing. The upper floors were built with the so-called Pombaline cage, an interlocking wooden structure, designed to distribute seismic forces, designed for a new earthquake, for fire prevention and fighting, all blocks had water wells in the lobbies and walls between buildings were higher than the roof to prevent fire progression.
