When the earth shook...

Free admission

Baixa was never the same again... What happened in 1755? Who survived? What was written about it? How did the city change?

One morning the earth shook, and Lisbon's waterfront was engulfed by sea and fire. 

Baixa was never the same again... What happened in 1755? Who survived? What was written about it? How did the city change?

The first challenge is to imagine and talk about what happened in this significant historical episode, which will be followed by drawing a collective panel depicting the city, rebuilt according to the precepts of the Marquis of Pombal.
