If you are after historic places, then Lisbon should be your city of choice. The city has lived through many events such as colossal empires, plagues, epidemics, fires, revolutions, coup d'État, dictatorships … quite a bit! On the 1st November 1755, Lisbon was victim to 3 earthquakes, 1 fire and 1 tsunami. The city was left devastated and almost completely destroyed. It’s urban intervention by the "Marques do Pombal" was the direct responsible of today’s appearance and reorganization of the new Lisbon. Gat Rossio is one of the fantastic constructions that this visionary plan left behind, the famous Pombal architucture. A building that seemed to be tailor- made for us, almost seemed it had been waiting for us! Same philosophy, 2 centuries apart…how lucky is that?!
