Lisbon Uptown

The cosmopolitan and literary Chiado, together with the bohemian Bairro Alto, are roamed about in this walk. The life and personality of the best known player of the modernist generation in Portugal - the poet Fernando Pessoa – provides the adequate script.

You will also spot unique perspectives of the city, available only from Lisbon’s most Romantic hill and the first to be seriously planned as an urban site in the 16th century.

Key features of this walk include:

  • Lisbon growing outside its walls
  • The city during the Romantic period
  • The poet Fernando Pessoa
  • The “A Brasileira” coffee shop and the modernist generation
  • Breathtaking views over the city
  • The golden age of the newspapers
  • Bohemian life in Bairro Alto

Lisbon of the Discoveries

A southern city. A city at the same time burning and cool that contains in the horizon the promise of the sea and the salted wind sweeping the hills.
