We enjoyed the narrow, winding streets, beautiful views,shops, churches and Old World charm of the Alfama area. My favorite area of Lisbon. Wear comfy shoes... hills and uneven surfaces.

Alfama as a neighborhood is the first place to visit in Lisboa. The views from Castelo do São Jorge are a great way to take in the city. And the fado houses are generally in this neighborhood. Finally, try to get lost in the alleyways...More

This is a must see part of Lisbon. This is where the castle, se (cathedral), Fado restaurants and (most importantly) the huge flea market take place. You cannot visit Lisbon without going to the Alfama area.

You can easily get to Alfama by bus or tram, but also you can walk up there via picturesque alleys. By walking, you can see much more about it!

The oldest district of Lisbon, between the slopes of Sao Jorge Castle and Rio Tejo, is beautiful and atmospheric part of the city, sometimes overcrowded by tourists, but always interesting and full of life. The labyrinth of narrow streets and small squares is today filled...More

We wondered the little narrow streets and found a tiny hole in the wall serving drinks. The afternoon flew by before our hike up to the castle. Make sure you stop for lunch in a small cafe on the way you can find some lovely...More
