Description

Portugal remained neutral in the 2nd World War and Lisbon became a rendezvous spot for spies, taking advantage of the city’s strategic Atlantic connections. Inside the city 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.
