I was a banker for 15 years, but corporate life didn't made me happy. My great pleasure is traveling and welcome my foreign friends in the city I love and where I've always lived (Lisboa). My goal is to offer an undertourism, tourism in unconventional places, through experiences that: - Escape from very crowded places; - Offer new experiences with positive impact and personal growth; - Sustainable and impacting the local economy; - Engaging with and participate in local culture It led me to start to offer a cultural tourism that helps in the preservation of our historical-cultural heritage and giving travelers unique experiences, and getting the opportunity to experience the Portuguese life and traditions :-))
- Church visit , we will open in the early hours of the day, only for this experience. Uncover it´s secrets and heritage in private tour. Main goal is to see some rooms that are normally closed to the general public and understand where we can help in the recovery. - Workshop Lesson at Atelier (near the Church) where we will have specialist in restoration who will teach us and help recover some wooden artifacts of the church.
