In the 2nd World War Lisbon swarmed with spies from the main sides in conflict. A Walking tour designed to find out how neutral Portugal provided the natural setting for conspiracy. Inside the city of Lisbon both the Allies and the Axis kept impressive diplomatic services: probably the only place in war-torn Europe where all sides were able to meet on equal grounds. Lisbon suddenly became a true “nest of spies” as mentioned in several period chronicles and the “plane to Lisbon”, as an escape route in the movie Casablanca, remains one of the best known examples. In this walking tour you will visit some of the sites related with the spy stories of: The most famous spy Hotels in Lisbon The refugees and the European fashion trends The lonely fight of the Portuguese consul in Bordeaux The most important WWII double agent: Garbo/Arabel The story of the real James Bond The Jewish gold and the tungsten traffic
