African Lisbon Tour

with Naky Gaglo

It will also be an opportunity to open space for a dialogue between participants on a theme so often made invisible in the public sphere. The tour will be a fusion of history and culture, giving voice to all and promoting a connection between people from all over the world.

(3 hours walking tour)

Meeting point: 10:30 - Praça do Comércio
Address: Praça do Comércio, 1100-148 Lisboa

End of the tour: 13:30 – Santa Catarina/São Bento
Address: Rua Poço dos Negros, 1200-109

Guided tour in English. The audience is advised to wear comfortable clothes and shoes and to be prepared to walk (Lisbon has a lot of hills and stairs!).
Tour offered by TNDM II to the participants.
