Publisher Comments:

¿Por qué el escudo de Portugal tiene una inclinación de 17º sobre la fachada de la estación de Rossio? ¿Dónde se tocó por primera vez La Flauta Mágica y por qué Mozart se la dedicó a su maestro Cagliostro? ¿Qué es la teoría del quinto imperio portugués cuyos rastros percibimos por toda la ciudad? ¿Dónde encontrar los más hermosos y recónditos azuleijos de la ciudad? ¿Cómo y por qué Lusitania se transformó en Portugal (Porto Grial), lugar de acogida del mítico Grial de Cristo? ¿Por qué el pórtico sur de los Jerónimos ha sido construido siguiendo unos principios cabalísticos hebraicos? ¿Cuáles son los símbolos escondidos del políptico de san Vicente del Museo de Arte Antiguo? ¿Quiénes son en realidad esos sebastianistas que, cual musulmanes chiitas, esperan el regreso del escondido rey Dom Sebastián?Desde la Edad Media, Lisboa ha sido un lugar de especial predilección para el desarrollo y aplicación de las teorías de los reyes alquimistas, de ministros francmasones, de poetas ocultistas, de adeptos de lo hermético y de los ocultos secretos de los Templarios que, en el siglo XIV, se refugiaron en Portugal tras su prohibición en el resto de Europa. Vitor Manuel Adriao, famoso historiador y filósofo, es el heredero portugués de todos estos conocimientos esotéricos. En esta verdadera guía iniciática nos desvela por primera vez su saber inaudito y descifra de manera sorprendente los arcanos de una ciudad destinada, para algunos, a convertirse en la capital espiritual de Europa.

Una guía excepcional.

Why is the Portuguese coat of arms set at an angle of 17° on the façade of Rossio station? Where in Portugal was The Magic Flute played for the first time and why did Mozart dedicate it to his master Cagliostro? What is the theory concerning the fifth dynasty of Portugal, traces of which are found in the street layout? Where can you find the most beautiful azulejos secreted around the city? Why and how did Lusitania become Portugal (Porto Graal), the place harbouring the legendary Holy Grail? Where can you find the Lisboan serial killers head preserved in formalin? Why was the south doorway of the Jerónimos Monastery designed according to Hebrew Kabbalistic principles? What symbols are concealed within the Saint Vincent polytych at the Museum of Antique Arts? Who in fact are the Sebastianists, messianic in the style of Shiite Muslims, awaiting the return of the lost King Sebastian?

Since the Middle Ages Lisbon has been a favourite site for the development and application of the theories of alchemist kings, masonic ministers, occult poets, followers of hermeticism and the secret knowledge of the Knights Templar, who found refuge in Portugal after they were banned from the rest of Europe in the 14th century.

 

Vitor Manuel Adrião, acclaimed historian and philosopher, is heir to all this esoteric knowledge in Portugal. Here for the first time he reveals his incredible knowledge in this truly initiatory guide, with a mind-boggling interpretation of the arcana of a city which some consider is on the way to becoming the spiritual capital of Europe.

 

An exceptional guide.
