The Secrets of Lisbon’s Baixa, Bairro Alto and Principe Real

17.00

This short Secret Trail to discover one of Lisbon’s most charming and historic neighbourhoods Barro Alto, Principe Real and hipster Baixa is an urban adventure where you solve 8 clues via our web app, simply using your unique link (which you receive via text message after payment) in your smartphone’s browser. The trail takes you exploring Baixa, Barro Alto and Principe Real and its hidden gems, and lesser-known places as you search for answers to our clues.

For each correct answer, we share some fun and historic stories and recommend (some of) our favourite bars and cafes along the way!

The price for the trail is 17.00 euros per team. We recommended playing with 2-5 people per team (you will use one phone together).

You can play one trail per user at a time. You can share your unique link with your teammates so everyone can see the clues. Only one player should be submitting the answers. If you run out of battery, someone else on the team can continue submitting the answers using the same link. If you want to play with more than one team, simply buy more than one trail. You will receive a unique link per trail, which can be opened on any smartphone with data.

If you have more time and want to explore more of the city, play The Secrets of Lisbon’s Historic Neighbourhoods trail. 

Description

How Does It Work?

  • Sign up and pay for the trail across Lisbon’s wonderful Baixa, Bairro Alto and Principe Real online. You will receive a text message with your unique link within 1 hour from completing the payment.
  • Start on Praca Luis de Camoes between 13:00-16:00 (daily/7 days a week) by opening the link, that you received upon purchase, in your browser on your phone. Simply press the Start button to begin playing.
  • Solve 8 clues by typing the answers in the text box and hit the ‘I’ve got it!’ button to submit your answer.
  • Enjoy discovering the city, the magnificent views and hidden gems across different neighbourhoods as each correct answer takes you to your next location within walking distance.
  • The answers to some clues are hidden inside places and spaces we like. We don’t take any commission for bringing you there – we simply think they add something extra to your experience.
  • Keep in mind that most answers are made up of one word only or a number – there are a few exceptions. 
  • Ask for a hint, by clicking the ‘I need help’ button, if you need a little help solving a clue. HINTS will get you nearer to the location where you need to search for the answer to your clue.
  • Please note there’s only one HINT per clue. Each HINT you ask for will add 10mins ‘penalty time’ to your overall time.
  • In case you’d like to skip a clue without solving it and want to receive the next one, press the ‘Skip this clue’ button. We recommend asking for a HINT before you skip a clue to make sure you are near the right spot to continue from.
  • Skipping a clue adds 20mins ‘penalty time’ to your overall time. 
  • You can always close and reopen your browser – and using your same unique link, you can continue playing where you left off.
