The Museum of Lisbon's rich collection includes a vast selection of 19th and 20th century paintings featuring Lisbon.

Many of the views depicted show a preference for ceramic elements, which contribute to the unique and special light of Lisbon.

In this tour, guided by Joana Sousa Monteiro, we will navigate the city from past to present, intersecting the gazes of important painters of the city of Lisbon and the current status of a constantly changing capital.
