You’ll explore one of the most historic neighborhoods in the city, a medieval pocket of Lisbon which is, in our humble opinion, still one of Lisbon’s best-kept secrets.

You could call Mouraria characteristic of shabby-chic, but its well-worn aesthetic is exactly where its charm lies.

Wind your way up the warren of narrow lanes (disclaimer: it’s pretty hilly, especially if you walk all the way up to the São Jorge Castle, which you absolutely should), stop by tiny shops selling ceramics, try some freshly grilled sardines in a hidden courtyard restaurant, visit an illustration gallery or stroll through the leafy Jardim de Cerca da Graça.

We suggest heading here at the end of the day to see a magical sunset from this secret spot, and you could even take some wine with you.

In this maze of streets is a history dating back to when Mouraria was the city’s Moorish ghetto, and you’ll find surprising diversity from far-flung corners of West Africa as well as deep-rooted Portuguese tradition.

You’ll see why the locals have kept this place all for themselves.
