The Great Lisbon Earthquake of 1755 destroyed eighty-five percent of Lisbon's buildings, including famous palaces and libraries, as well as most examples of Portugal's distinctive 16th-century Manueline architecture. Come tour a simulation of Lisbon before this tragic destruction took place.  This is an example of an historical simulation for learning in a virtual world.
