Another Side of Lisbon:

An Original Take Lisboa Tour

Take Lisboa launches a freetour like no other: an off the beaten track tour that mixes past and present, old and new.


This visit goes inside the district of Graça where the Portuguese troops rested on the siege of Lisbon. For many, Graça is Lisbon's most beautiful district, where 1.000 year churches live side by side with beautiful viewpoints of the castle and the river Tejo.

The tour reveals the old walls of the city painted with numerous street art projects by local and international artists. Some are political, others are true hommages to the city's poets. All are a contemporary visions that outline the city's character. 

It also shows the XIX century industrial villas hidden in plain sight and some of Lisbon's most notorious viewpoints with breathtaking scenery.

Groups of 8 or more are always welcomed. In this case we require a prepayment of 10€ per adult and 5€ per youngster under 18.

Children under 14 are free of charge. This principle results from the need to protect and value the level of quality and dedication we demand of our Take Lisboa local guides.

To attend the Alternative Free Tour booking is required.
