Arrived in Lisbon, the city of seven hills and walking around its streets , we are surprised to be in an European country so much the African presence is very strong.
There arises a question that many people ask: why so many of African in the streets of Lisbon? Make no mistake, it is not about the immigration that medias are talking about today.
Answers through the history
We know well the role of Portugal in what is called the time of the “discoveries” and the slavery. But it does not answer
completely our question because this subject is deep. We decided to dig and find elements that explain at best this old and present reality.
Through the space and the time, our tour, although not chronological, brings us on the footsprints of the African slaves and their daily life in the Portuguese society in general and lisboetas in particular.
Our adventure will take us also to the century of the colonizations and the independence movements in Africa.
We gonna try to check the importance of africans in the present portuguese society, their implication in the social, cultural and gastronomic life.
Almost 4 hours tour that ends up with a good relaxation time in an african restaurant to make one’s mouth water. A time for sharing.
Welcome to the African Lisbon Tour
May the adventure starts.
