LEARN THE CITY HISTORY

From the 8th century BC through to the present day, there are so many significant moments in the city’s history that you will be fascinated to discover: the presence and legacy of Phoenicians, Romans and Moors, the reconquest by King Afonso III, the massive destruction caused by pillaging English troops, the terrible earthquakes, the most iconic buildings, the arrival of the railway and the inauguration of the airport and the university are just a few.

Locals, visitors, families and schoolchildren will all have a great time here.
