TITLE:

Gateways to the unknown

STARTING POINT:

Lisbon's great Gateway at the Praça do Comercio marks an ancient crossing point between land and sea. Between countries and continents. Between the chapters in the life stories of everyone who has passed through it. This gateway has seen many changes over time but what if it was more than that? What if it was a portal through time? A doorway between the past and future or between our world and another. What is on the other side and do we dare cross the threshold?

OUT AND ABOUT:

The out and about will be a visit to Lisbon’s amazing Praça do Comercio.
