Description

This Lisbon blessed by the Saints is the ultimate alternative program to discovery the Portuguese capital, exploring churches, sanctuaries and urban corners touched by the perfume of transcendence, but also visiting a couple of special pagan 'chapels' like pastry shops and art galleries.

Lisbon rejected St Crispim, the first patron saint appointed by the  Church, and chose instead St. Vincent, a legendary hispanic saint that later became almost forgotten. Then came Saint Anthony, very popular and more or less reinvented by the citizens of the Portuguese capital. Even today (almost) nobody can really tell who is the genuine patron of Lisbon, but the mystic of the saints keeps on feeding the culture and the spirituality of the city. That’s why we propose an itinerary of visions and passions that meanders through the ancient districts of Alfama, Mouraria and Graça, swinging between key historical events and incredible legends.
