What you'll do

As I'm a History and walking/hiking lover, I thought that it would be a great idea organise a guided tour through Cacilhas and the old part of Almada, my home city, and share my knowledge about the places I'll show you. Meeting Point: Cacilhas Metro Station, next to ticket vending machines, because it's right next to the ferryboats, and, for us, it's the most appropriate place to start a tour guide like this. Then we will proceed the visit along the riverbank, where the abandoned fishing factories are. After the abandoned factories, we'll show the Elevador da Boca do Vento and the old town of Almada, including the Castle and its garden and viewpoint, the Town Hall, the Cineteatro Incrível Almadense and the local market. Leaving the old town, we'll taste the traditional cake/pâtisserie from Almada, in Av. D. Afonso Henriques, then continuing the tour guide throught the most known streets, Rua Cmte. António Feio and Rua Cândido dos Reis, leading us back to Cacilhas, then we will do a brief presentation about the now-turned museum Frigate D. Fernando II e Glória and Submarine Barracuda. Then we will bring you back to the ferryboat station.
