  • See the most secret and beautiful churches in Lisbon
  • Discover churches closed to the public
  • Learn the secret histories behind these churches
Full description
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. 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.

I had booked this tour because I was intrigued by the type of tour. Unfortunately, due to the anti Covid-19 regulations, many churches are closed so it was not possible to enter them, therefore the guide had to adapt the route on the spot, changing the nature of the tour. The guide was very good at managing a difficult situation (I say this because I also do the same job as him) and repeatedly called the reference agency for more information, he also extended the route by an hour in the early afternoon not to leave us disappointed. I suggest that you suspend this activity until conditions allow

Nous avons l'habitude de visiter par nous-mêmes les églises mais le guide parlant français nous a fait découvrir de l'histoire et certaines que nous n'aurions pas trouvé, la visite se fait à pied mais le temps passe vite grâce à la promenade et la gentillesse de Filip

Une excursion très intéressante dans une ville chargée d’histoire et surtout d’églises inattendue et très secrètes ! Superbes vues de la ville. À faire absolument !
