Lisbon Old Town

Portugal remained neutral in the 2nd World War and Lisbon became a rendezvous spot for spies, taking advantage of the city’s strategic Atlantic connections, quickly turning into a true “nest of spies” as mentioned in several period chronicles.

The “plane to Lisbon”, as an escape route in the movie Casablanca, remains one of the best known examples. Inside the city both the Allies and the Axis kept impressive diplomatic services: probably the only place in war-torn Europe where all sides were able to meet on equal grounds.

In this walking tour you will visit some of the sites related with the spy stories of the 2nd World War and also learn about: 

  • The most famous spy Hotels in Lisbon
  • The refugees and the fashion trends
  • The lonely fight of the Portuguese consul in Bordeaux
  • The most important WWII spy, Garbo/Arabel
  • The story of the real James Bond
  • The Jewish gold and the tungsten traffic
  • The games of the political police
