I’ve named this tour the Superwoman Tour because, historically and even today, women in Portugal – and many other places – have had to be incredibly strong to succeed in areas where men typically dominate.

During this tour, we’ll explore parts of the city that are usually overlooked but hold special meaning for women, both individually and as a group. These places have an impact on the city and society.

Throughout the tour, I’ll tell you stories about women who cleverly fought against dictatorship, who were persecuted for being different, who bravely resisted arranged marriages, and who inspired others to do the same. We’ll also hear about convent sisters who made the best of their situation, female poets who influenced politics, and women who encouraged free thinking with their intelligence and elegance. These stories will take us through history and the city, offering a unique and touching experience you won’t find anywhere else.
