Portugal: Lisbon, “Missionary walks” to learn about historical and religious heritage

The “Lay for Development” association (Ld) has organised a new “Missionary Walks” event on 15th and 16th October, which will focus on “a guided tour of Lisbon’s ancient lifts and the Church of St Paul”. “The goal of our initiatives is to make people learn more about the less well-known religious heritage, and it would be unforgivable not to let them enjoy the beautiful restoration of the roof of the Church of St Paul”, stated the president of the General Assembly of Ld. In an interview with the press, Vasco Mina explained that, because the church is located near the famous “Elevador da Bica”, the association felt it had to “make people learn more about all of Lisbon’s ancient lifts, given how important they have been for the development of the city’s public transport”. The “Missionary Walks” 2016 initiative aims at “showing the technological developments of the four lifts of Lisbon – Bica, Santa Justa, Glória and Lavra –, explaining how they have helped Lisbon’s residents move around, and adding more news about the places touched by the tour”. The nongovernmental development organisation (NGDO) started such guided tours back in 2014, in the attempt to reconcile some alternative forms of fund-raising, for a better understanding of the historical-religious heritage of its members.
