Continue on this Lisbon city tour to explore the magnetic neighbourhood of Mouraria – a melting pot of cultures from far and wide, and a place you wont see on other Lisbon tours. Portugal’s seafaring past has allowed many different cultural influences to contribute to the richness of modern-day Lisbon.
