A guided visit to Núcleo Arqueológico da Rua dos Correeiros

Lisbon has great museums to visit and learn more about the history of the city. Our Portuguese language school decided to organize a guided tour to the Núcleo Arqueológico da Rua dos Correeiros. Join us on the 22nd of May!

Indira Leão, our history teacher will accompany us to the museum. The visit is free and will be held in Portuguese by a guide of the museum.

During the guided visit, we’ll explore the history of Lisbon since the Roman period until the pombaline’s period.

From the Roman period, we’ll see pieces of amphora used to carry olive oil.

In 411, Lusitania, the actual territory of Iberia Peninsula, started to be dominated by barbarian peoples such as the Alans, the Visigoths and the Suevi. From this period, we will observe in the museum a grave with a body inside it.

The Muslim presence that has been felt in Lisbon since the year 714 can also be found in the museum. Among the Muslim remains we can find ceramic utensils such as pots and lamps.

The Christian Lisbon, began in 1147 when the Christians reconquered the city to the Muslims. We’ll find a vase used to serve wine and was imported from the Saintonge region.

The Great Earthquake of 1755 and the Reconstruction of Lisbon marked another age of the History of Lisbon: the pombaline’s period. We’ll see some anti-seismic innovations made at this time.

We’ll discover more important archaeological artefacts and stories of Lisbon!

At the end of the guided tour, we’ll go to a cosy esplanade!

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to practise your Portuguese skills while learning about the History of the city.
