Learn more about the Moorish and Castilian invasions and the more recent one in the 19th century by Napoleon's troops. Pass by the Lello & Irmão bookstore, frequented by J. K. Rowling. Then visit the Clerics Church. Shortly after, arrive at São Bento Railway station built on the site of a former Benedictine convent inside the walled city. This is also one of the landmarks of the city and one of the most well-known stations in the world. Then see Carmo and Carmelitas church and learn about its history.

We totally enjoyed our tour & Nuno, our guide was outstanding & very knowledgeable. We missed our original tour & with the assistance of Mary Ann we were added to the Jewish Tour, which was very interesting for us, being non-Jewish. Bill & Barb
