Lisboa antes da Modernidade - arte urbana do seculo 19

After this cold week, we are ready to enjoy our next tour under the spring-like sun. On Wednesday 8th of March, our stroll will be focused on “Lisboa antes da modernidade”. For eight hundred years, in Lisbon has been mixed several and different cultural influences, that have contributed to the creation of this dynamic, modern and fascinating city. This time, exploring the city center, our teacher Beatriz will help us to know more about the art of the XIX century. During the 1800s, two different art styles, neoclassicism and romanticism, were born, leaving their tracks in the streets, squares and statues. The most famous is the neoclassical Arch of Praça do Comercio, projected by Eugenio dos Santos, the architect of the reconstruction after the earthquake in 1755; however, the Arch was realized just one hundred years later, by Verissimo de Costa. Beatriz will reveal us the stories hidden behind all the details of the city, don’t lose the opportunity to participate!

After the tour we will have a drink all together to relax and enjoy life. We will meet on the 8th of March, in Praça Luís de Camões, next to the statue, at 3.00 p.m. Come with us to improve your Portuguse and meet new friends!
