Hidden food spots and untold history in Baixa and Mouraria…
With its Neoclassical architecture, designer boutiques and cobbled streets lined with bars and restaurants – Baixa is the historical centre and commercial heart of Lisbon. Just a short walk away, Mouraria is Lisbon’s most multicultural neighbourhood and the birthplace of fado music. As one of only two districts to survive the great earthquake, Mouraria offers layers of history and a rare snapshot of local life.
One thing both neighbourhoods have in common today, is that they’re home to some of the city’s tastiest food!
On this 3.5 hour culinary tour, we take you away from the crowds to the traditional restaurants that are loved and frequented by the locals themselves. As you walk the backstreets of Baixa and Mouraria, your local guide will regale you with fascinating facts and stories about the sights you pass – giving you a much more meaningful understanding of the city than you’ll get from the guidebooks.
