Didn’t actually see the ruins because apparently you need to reserve your spot ahead of time and we were turned away at the door saying they were all booked up for the rest of the day. It doesn’t state ANYWHERE on their website that you...More

A free tour of archeological remains below a functioning bank in Baixa district. Make sure to sign up before hand. Our guide was very knowledgeable and spoke great English.

If you love archaeology, you can’t miss this place in Lisbon. You’ll be guided through centuries of history, and everything is free. Just book in advance as the tours may be all booked. The entrance is on this street but on the parallel one.

This was one of my favourite days during our visit to Lisbon. We booked our free tour for our family of five. Very informative and excellent guide.

We searched this place out to see the underground ruins obviously, BUT, we were blown away by the beauty of the building itself. It is the original Bank of Portugal. You don't have to do a tour, you can just wander round by yourself which...More

Interesting historical site of a Roman fish factory with remarkable artifacts ranging from 5th century BC to 12th century. Unfortunately our tour guide was absolutely despicable. Our group consisted of two families with very young children (including us) and a couple. The guide seemed utterly...More

This was a very insightful, guided and - best of all - free tour that lasted between 30 minutes and an hour, and taught us a lot about Baixa's history before and after the Great Earthquake. The underground sardine "factory" was fascinating, and we loved...More

Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site,
Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply
"Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake
construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755
earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its
name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in
Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the
Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the
