Your experience


  • Get a bibliography of the most interesting espionage stories of Lisbon
  • Learn more about the fascist dictatorship in Portuguese Estado Novo
  • Discover the most important places and districts that were important at the time of the 2nd World War


Portugal remained neutral during the Second World War and Lisbon became a meeting place for spies, taking advantage of the city's strategic links with the Atlantic Ocean and quickly turning into a veritable "spy nest", as mentioned in several chronicles of the time. The "plane to Lisbon", as an escape route in the film Casablanca, remains one of the most famous examples

Inside the city, both the Allies and the Axis powers maintained impressive diplomatic services: Lisbon was probably the only place in war-torn Europe where all sides could meet on equal terms.

Learn all about the time, the double agents in Lisbon and the most interesting operations planned here.

Let us tell you exciting stories about the refugees, Nazi gold and exiled royal families and learn more about Portuguese neutrality and Salazar's dictatorship.

Discover the escape routes, listen to interesting information about the lonely struggle of the Portuguese consul in Brussels, about the spy network on allied ship convoys and about how the RAF and the Luftwaffe fought on the coast of Portugal.

During the tour you will get to know the most exciting historical places and you can immerse yourself in another world with the vivid stories that your guide will tell you
