For those seeking to explore the true cultural centre of Lisbon, our Mouraria tour should be on your list!
With the arrival Portuguese Christian control in Lisbon in the XII century, the Moorish community were confined to a neighbourhood just outside the city walls, thus creating Mouraria. A religious minority community back then, nowadays Mouraria continues to thrive as a multi-ethnic community full of rich history and cultures.

Detached from the hustle and bustle of Lisbon’s centre, Mouraria is a small village within a city! This friendly neighbourhood is also home one of Lisbon’s many viewpoints, offering incredible panoramic views of this beautiful city and the all-important photo opportunity!
