Lisbon Peddy Paper

Lisbon’s Downtown (Baixa in Portuguese) flows down to the multihued River Tagus, “brushing up against” such of Lisbon’s jewels as are Restauradores and Rossio, then emerging into what is one of the city’s ex-libris and one of the most beautiful squares in Europe – the Praça da Figueira. Belém, for its part, stands for the path to modernity, with monuments such as the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos and the Torre de Belém having been classified by UNESCO as World Heritage.With this program we plan, by means of certain tasks, to take a look at the most important zones in the city of Lisbon, each with their own legends and stories, while catching a glimpse of the daily life of local people, who they are, how they live, where they came from.  We have introduced what we consider to be less “trodden” paths into this program, but richer ones from a tourist standpoint. By doing this, we “make” participants visit typical places in a lively and entertaining way.On arrival participants will be given a briefing and general rules will be distributed, along with road-books, team numbering and pocket-money.  The “BAIXA . BELÉM PEDDY PAPER” sets out to show the contrast between Ancient and Modern Lisbon and will take participants to its most interesting points, of which we would highlight: Downtown Lisbon and the Belém zone – Jerónimos, Bélem Cultural Center (CCB), Museu da Marinha, Padrão dos Descobrimentos, etc...The pastimes and tasks to be accomplished will enhance the program in different ways. To achieve this, we have divided them into the following general categories: Observation quizzes, local thematic quizzes, a tram trip, trying out regional specialties (cherry brandy and Belém custard cream tarts) shopping for typical products (chestnuts, gaily painted Barcelos Cockerel statuettes), and photos (optional).ROAD-BOOKS – Teams will find these a useful tool in achieving their goals.  They’ll be easy to handle and understand, while being entertaining at the same time.  All itineraries and tasks will be listed in these books.  The competitive factor is, of course, part of these activities, but in a beneficial way because in the end it turns out to be a win-win situation for everyone in getting to know a little more about Lisbon, Portugal and the people in their team.

The team sorting will be done by means of a change game, or any other way suited to your Client.List of some places of itinerary:Castelo São Jorge, Mouraria, Alfama, Baixa Pombalina, Restauradores, Chiado, Largo Camões, Largo do Carmo, Assembleia da República.Short brief:ChiadoChiado is nowadays a noble shopping area with all sorts of facilities and street entertainment. Here you will find hotels, theatres, bookshops, museums, restaurants, famous Portuguese fashion houses and the famous haunt of personalities like Fernando Pessoa and Eça de Queiroz, in a location actually chosen by the city's art students: the café "A Brasileira". This area has that 'special something' and you can see it in the buildings and live it in the story of the 1988 fire. On the 25th of August 1988, Chiado was devastated by a fire that started in a store in Carmo Street and that spread to Garrett Street. Even though there are still some scars of that disaster, a massive renovation programme has brought todays Chiado back to life and it is better than ever!Largo de CamõesThe most important writer in Portuguese history and one of the preeminent European poets of the early modern era, Luís de Camões (1524–80) has been ranked as a sonneteer on par with Petrarch, Dante, and Shakespeare. Championed by such influential English poets as William Blake and Elizabeth Barrett Browning, and admired in America by Edgar Allan Poe, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and Herman Melville, Camões was renowned for his intensely personal sonnets and equally intense adventurous life. He was banished for duelling and brawling at court, lost an eye fighting the Moors in North Africa, was shipwrecked off the coast of India, jailed in Goa, and exiled in Mozambique. Throughout these personal trials, he advanced poetry beyond the Petrarchin model of love won and lost to write of personal despair, history, politics, war, religion, and the natural beauty of PortugalAssembleia da RepúblicaThe Palácio de São Bento is the home of the Assembly of the Republic, the Portuguese parliament. It is located in Lisbon, in the freguesia with the same name. The building had its origin in the first Benedictine monastery built in Lisbon, in the XVI century. As the order's local community grew, the monastery was transferred to the present location of Palácio de São Bento. When the construction works of the new building were almost finished, the destructive 1755 Lisbon earthquake severely damaged it. After the 1820s Liberal Revolution the Portuguese Parliament was installed in the building. It was subject of several improvements in the 1940s, during Salazar's Estado Novo regime, becoming a symbol of the nation. Since democracy became the political system of the country, after the 1974 Carnation Revolution, it is the most common place for a manifestation to be held.                  Includes:• Gastronomy tasting (Pastries of Belém),  and ginginha (cherry drink)• 1 Digital camera for each team  • “Road book” for each team A5 format, with allusive pictures of Lisbon• Glazed Tiles for the winner team• Staff from the organization Place:Lisboa.
