Baltasar and Blimunda

José Saramago
…Lisbon could be seen stretching beyond the city walls. The castle dominated the panorama, while church towers and spires rose above the rooftops of the houses below, a blurred conglomeration of gables. (…) There stood Lisbon, presented on the palm of the earth, a façade of high walls and tall houses.
SARAMAGO, José, Baltasar & Blimunda, Harvill Press/London, 1998


José Saramago weaves the early 18th century Portugal almost like a fairy tale where a King, a one-harm soldier, a witch, a flying priest merge into a magical story.

We may not recognize the Lisbon where Baltasar arrives. But through the guidance of Saramago’s novel, we will have a glimpse of the atmosphere of the bustling city.

Even if you haven’t read the novel, the tour will unravel a different Lisbon.
