    Join us after the sun sets for an evening walking tour in Lisbon as we explore the darker side of the city’s history through the winding streets of Alfama and downtown Lisbon.

    The history of Lisbon is a tale of glory and success. As one of the wealthiest and most important capital cities of the 16th Century, the memories of its achievements are well known to many. However, behind all the triumphs, lie the darker details of this beautiful corner of Europe – for wherever there is light there is shadow. We take you on a journey through Lisbon's darker lesser-known past, from Portugal's slave-trading past and the dark days of the Inquisition, right up to the 20th Century and the dictator Salazar and his feared secret police. 

    Among the many horrors you will hear on this evening tour, you will learn about the following key aspects of Lisbon’s history: The Inquisition, the slave trade, the great earthquake and the rise of Salazar and his brutal dictatorship.
