Summary

The Lisboa Story Centre is an interactive tour for all who visit the Portuguese capital. It gives them a trip back in time to learn and discover the story of Lisbon, since its foundation until present day.

Itinerary

Located in the Terreiro do Paço, an interactive equipment of the Lisboa Story Centre will narrate to you the major city events from past to present. 

Built on the hills bathed by the river Tejo, and with eyes fixed on the Atlantic Ocean, Lisbon is a fascinating mosaic of memories, stories and influences that still dot the urban landscape of this unique city. The various episodes that make up its history and some of its protagonists are now presented in Lisbon Story Centre, where all who visit the Portuguese capital are invited to make a journey through time and discover the memories of Lisbon, from its founding to the present day. 

In a playful and interactive way, while respecting the historical accuracy, that a city with the past of Lisbon requires and deserves, this interpretation center provides the visitor through the system audio guide, 60 minutes of a journey in time and space, presenting reports and dramatic scenarios faithful at the time.

The route of the visit is organised into six core elements: Lisbon: Myths and Realities, which covers the Rio, the Earth, the sea, the sky, mythological beginnings, settlers and conquerors and the City Walls; Lisbon: Global City, which features the Cosmopolitan City, the Warehouse of the World; Beyond The Horizon; Flying Priest; Magnificent City; and Death and Politics and the Church.

In the section commemorating November 1, 1755, the day of All Saints tragedy, the Earthquake that ruined city is presented, going to the core of the Vision of Pombal, which presents the Modern City Planning in post-earthquake reconstruction of the city . And finally, the core Palace Square, which is addressed in the Square: Politics and Recreation.

The 1755 earthquake is shown in a theatre immersive experience that no one will forget. The visit may be complemented with moving to the 1st floor, where the audience can interact with a model representative of the interactive centre of Lisbon, which spatially visualises events  previously chosen in the place where it occurred.

RUA AUGUSTA ARCH

Rua Augusta Arch is one of the main tourist attractions in Lisbon city. It was built to commemorate the reconstruction of city after the major 1755 Earthquake. Actually, the construction of this stone arch started in 1755 and was only completed in 1875 after a century long delay. This arch has six columns, each one is designed with statues of historical figures. From the top of the arch, visitors will get a great panoramic view of the city. The arch is situated in a pedestrian area, with cafes, shops and restaurants.
