Private Walking Tour: The Manueline Art and a Custard Tart
Discover the new found lands where the navigators arrived and from where they got back bringing so many exotic products, through the eyes of a monument dedicated to all these conquests.
Travel back in time until the XVI century and delight yourself by looking at the Belém Tower, which lays on River Tagus' light blue waters.
After visiting the magnificient Saint Jerome's Monastery, the jewel of Manueline Art in Portugal, taste the local crunchy custard tarts from the XIX century, seasoned with one of the favourite spices navigators brought from Asia: cinnamon.
To give it a big finale, check all territories where the Portuguese arrived in a huge world map at your feet, by the Monument to the Discoveries - the caravel made of stone looking at the River flowing into the Atlantic Ocean.

We couldn't have asked for a better guide. I have been using tours by locals for many years, and Marta is by far one of he best tour guides we have had. She catered her tour to our needs exactly and was flexible in her approach. We were with our daughter, and Marta went out of her way to make her feel comfortable. Her knowledge is deep and she has a very pleasant demeanor. I highly recommend Marta for any of your in and around Lisbon needs.
