Insiders’ historical secrets about Lisbon, revealed at the city’s most interesting places
It will be original, because it will provide a curated selection of points of interest/secrets, not an extensive list of the usual tourist stops.
We intend to develop the app in such a way that secrets will only be revealed upon the physical presence of the user at the relevant point of interest, and that presence will be registered in the app, giving the user a sense of fulfillment after visiting several different interesting places. We think that's a creative way to involve the user.
Innovative because it will join for the first time stories that have passed through generations, that you would usually only have access to if you were a local, with state of the art mobile technology.
