Fernando Pessoa Tour
We'll meet at 11 am in front of Café A Brasileira, where none other than Fernando Pessoa will be waiting for us sitting on the terrace.
This place, presenting a Modernist design, was an important meeting place for intellectuals and artists, including the famous writer from Lisbon. A bronze statue was placed in his honor here, which is the point where we'll begin this tour of his life and work.
On this tour of Fernando Pessoa, we'll rediscover Lisbon through the eyes of the poet. After seeing the house where he was born, we'll follow his steps visiting the bars where he met with other writers and we'll learn which were his favorite spots in the city. In some of them he used to meet his beloved Ofélia Queiroz, to whom he dedicated a complete epistolary work.
One of the most interesting aspects of Pessoa's biography were his heteronyms, pen names with which he created many of his works. The streets of the Portuguese capital were the main settings for his stories, and on this tour we'll get to know some of the places that appear in novels such as Livro do Desassossego, by Bernardo Soares, one of his many nom de plumes.
After this journey through Fernando Pessoa's beloved Lisbon, we'll return to the starting point to end the tour at 2 pm.
The activity takes place with a guide that speaks in English.
