On Thursday 12th of October, our teacher Beatriz will accompany us in the “São Jorge Castle" and along the streets of Mouraria. The Castle is a national monument, a famous attraction and has a central role in the history of Lisbon. It has been built by Moors for defensive purpose, and in XII century the Christians conquered it, thanks to the help of Martim Moniz. After the reconquer, the neighborhood Mouraria became the place where Moors were allowed to live, and today is still the most multiethnic district.

Walking down these streets is like going back to the past when Fado resounded between the balconies…

After the tour, we will enjoy the amazing view from the hill castle and we will have a drink all together.

Join us on Wednesday 12th of October to know more! The meeting point is at the Ticket Office of the Castle at 3.00 p.m. The entrance with the School is free!
