Program Description

Event Details

Join Jeanne, The Savvy Sightseer, in person at the library for a tour of this popular, dynamic city, which CNN called one of the "coolest" cities in Europe for its atmosphere and charm. Explore Lisbon's architecture and history of tile work, including a 75-foot tile mural of Lisbon before a lethal earthquake shook the town in 1755. You'll also see the city's fabulous views, and enjoy a tour of the "house museum," which gives a glimpse of life in a wealthy businessman's 1940s home. And, of course, there will be a foodie stroll to check out local specialties including Pasteis de Nata (custard cups) and Bacalhau (salt cod). Join us!
