Tired of the increasing crowdedness of the city and feel like you need a drink? Then kill two birds with one stone by taking a trip down to Alentejo to learn about (and taste) one of the best things about Portugal — the wine!
More specifically, Talha Wine, in a century old winery and museum perfected by generations of the Honrado family.
Here’s what Cella Vinaria Antigua (“Old Wine Cellar”) tell us:
“At Cella Vinaria Antiqua, the goal is to develop an ecotourism project in a century-old building with a history associated with generations and generations of winemakers and innkeepers, based on the characteristics of the primitive construction, which are important to know in order to understand all the spirit implicit in the art of creating Vinho de Talha.”

Jun 29 @ 10:30 – 13:30
ALL YEAR | GUIDED TOUR | Alfama and Mouraria Free Walking Tour | Rossio | FREE @ VARIOUS LOCATIONS

The best way to experience history is to live it. That’s why our friends at Live History offer you an immersive three-hour glimpse into two of the most historical, oldest, and most alive neighborhoods in Lisbon: Mouraria and Alfama.
Free of charge.

The guides are enthusiastic, charming polyglots. They’re funny, welcome and respond thoughtfully to questions, intimidatingly knowledgeable, easy to follow (both on foot and in thought), and truly seem to care.
Also, their only pay is the love of their city and your tip at the end. Remember, these are locals and, despite what AirBnB might believe, need to live here too. So tip well if you feel you’ve lived some history!

What to know:
-You can pre-book a spot on our Marketplace. Or if you’re reading this the morning of, you could try to meet them at 10h30 by the statue at the center of Praça Dom Pedro IV, also known as Rossio square.
-The guides wear white Live History t-shirts, have white umbrellas, and are dressed up as Portuguese crusaders and navigators if you’re lucky.
-Available languages: English / Spanish (languages on demand: Portuguese / French / Czech / Slovak).
-These are free walking tours. Donations welcome at the end.
-Comfortable shoes and a water bottle are advisable.

Contact them if you need more info, or “if you feel the need for your own private tailor-made tour.”

And read Atlas‘ in-depth interview with Live History co-founder Jofre Correia here.

P.S.: If you’re worried about three hours up and down the eight (ask your guide) hills of Lisbon, we know for a fact that last August, in the sweltering heat, an American woman did the whole tour, effortlessly, with a smile on her face… a mere five days before giving birth.

ALL YEAR | GUIDED TOUR | Alfama and Mouraria Free Walking Tour | Rossio | FREE
Jul 20 @ 10:30 – 13:30
ALL YEAR | GUIDED TOUR | Alfama and Mouraria Free Walking Tour | Rossio | FREE @ VARIOUS LOCATIONS

The best way to experience history is to live it. That’s why our friends at Live History offer you an immersive three-hour glimpse into two of the most historical, oldest, and most alive neighborhoods in Lisbon: Mouraria and Alfama.
Free of charge.

The guides are enthusiastic, charming polyglots. They’re funny, welcome and respond thoughtfully to questions, intimidatingly knowledgeable, easy to follow (both on foot and in thought), and truly seem to care.
Also, their only pay is the love of their city and your tip at the end. Remember, these are locals and, despite what AirBnB might believe, need to live here too. So tip well if you feel you’ve lived some history!

What to know:
-You can pre-book a spot on our Marketplace. Or if you’re reading this the morning of, you could try to meet them at 10h30 by the statue at the center of Praça Dom Pedro IV, also known as Rossio square.
-The guides wear white Live History t-shirts, have white umbrellas, and are dressed up as Portuguese crusaders and navigators if you’re lucky.
-Available languages: English / Spanish (languages on demand: Portuguese / French / Czech / Slovak).
-These are free walking tours. Donations welcome at the end.
-Comfortable shoes and a water bottle are advisable.

Contact them if you need more info, or “if you feel the need for your own private tailor-made tour.”

And read Atlas‘ in-depth interview with Live History co-founder Jofre Correia here.

P.S.: If you’re worried about three hours up and down the eight (ask your guide) hills of Lisbon, we know for a fact that last August, in the sweltering heat, an American woman did the whole tour, effortlessly, with a smile on her face… a mere five days before giving birth.
