Have you always heard of the 1755 earthquake without realizing how deeply it modified the look of the Portuguese capital? In that case, head to the Praça do Comércio – one of the largest city squares – where you will find the lovely ochre façade of the Lisboa Story Centre. Using an audio guide (in English, French, Portuguese or Spanish) and the latest interactive equipment based on 3D technology, you will be able to witness and feel the impact of the terrible earthquake. Be ready for waves of different emotions as the city, almost entirely destroyed, is slowly rebuilt before your eyes!
Divided into six main sections, the Lisboa Story Centre unveils all the secrets of the “City of Seven Hills”, from its construction during the Phoenician era to our modern times. Full-scale decors, photographs, animated videos and even holograms will plunge you into a moving exploration of the capital's past.
