Vamos atravessar o Rio Tejo

Wed, 05.07.2017
Cristo Rei - Almada

This week our tour will take us beyond the city limits. You guessed right, we are crossing the Tejo to look at our city from another angle!

When: Wednesday, July 5, 3.00 pm
Where: Praça do Comércio
(In the middle of the square at the statue, look out for our logo!)

We will walk to Cais do Sodré and cross the river by boat which will give us a magnificient view over Lisbon. During the boat trip, our teacher Beatriz will explain what we can see on both sides of the Tejo.

Almada is the old industrial center of the wider area of Lisbon. Still today, the dockyards are located there. In addition, our teacher Beatriz will also tell us about the Cristo Rei monument. You will also have the chance to take the elevator to the old town of Almada. Do not miss out on this opportunity only few tourists have!

 

At the end of the day, we will go to Cais do Ginjal and enjoy the nice view with a cold drink. Excited? Then confirm your attendance with an email to: communication@portuguesetcetera.com

Meet people from other classes, practice your Portuguese in a relaxed environment and enjoy the miradouro over Lisbon!

Tour Report and Photo Gallery

Fomos atravessar o Rio Tejo

Last week on Wednesday, we crossed the Tejo for a tour of a different kind. Instead of seeing another neighborhood of Lisbon we went to Almada and learned about its history and importance for Lisbon.

On our way, we did a trip through time. Settlements on the Southern banks of the Tejo date back even further than those on the Northern side where today our beautiful city of Lisbon is located. Our teacher Beatriz told us about how the city was safe haven during the black plague for the wealthy aristocrats from Lisbon. Today, the coastline has an industrial charm, as you can see in the pictures below.

After the tour some of our students took the chance and went up to the Cristo Rei statue. Highly recommended!

 

Join our next tour tomorrow, Wednesday, July 12. We meet at 3.00 pm on Praça do Comércio right by the statue!
