Alternative Free Tour
Discover the other side of Lisbon! Admire the street art, graffiti and, overall, the urban contrasts of the Mouraria and Graça neighborhoods.
Duration: 2 hours 30 min
Come see the off-the-beaten-path Lisbon in our Alternative Free Tour! Admire the urban contrasts and the different realities in the Mouraria and Graça neighborhoods while enjoying the best street art in town.
Just a couple of streets after we start, as we walk towards Martim Moniz, we start feeling the different vibe. Did you know that, nowadays, more than 70 different nationalities live in the Mouraria? And, right after some stairs, we reach one of the first street art galleries in Lisbon: the Caracol da Graça, with the works of artists like Thiago Gomms, Utopia or Akacorleone.
As we venture into the Graça district, we enjoy one of the best viewpoints in town as we discover the working villas – authentic neighborhoods within neighborhoods built in beginning of the XX century to house factory workers -, discuss about poetry and admire murals by Shepard Farey VHILS and even Bordalo II.
The tour will finish admiring one of the most astonishing works in Lisbon: André Saraiva‘s tile mural, next to the National Pantheon. Book now to enjoy the alternative side of Lisbon with us!

We're a big group. Can we still join?
We always try not to leave anyone out but, sometimes with large groups, it is difficult to organize the tour and the guides. Groups of 7 or more are always welcomed, but we require a prepayment of 10€ per adult and 5€ per youngster (14 – 18 years). This principle results from the need to protect and value the level of quality and dedication of our guides.
