Alfama is not only one of the oldest and most picturesque districts in Lisbon, but also was one of the only neighborhoods, which was not destroyed in the 1755 earthquake. And so, the city still has kept its quaint familial charm. In fact, the moniker of this neighborhood comes from the Arabic ‘Al-hamma’ meaning ‘hot fountains’ or ‘baths’.

Aditional information

Decorated in beautiful ‘azulejos’, the steep winding alleys of this neighbourhood give way to breath-taking views of a sea of terracotta roofs and the Tagus River. The aromas of traditional Portuguese cuisine, the echoes of Fado tunes, and the elderly Portuguese locals chattering, all make this neighbourhood one of the most authentic in Lisbon!

Our tour begins in Rossio and passes some key areas before heading into the heart of Alfama where you will also make a stop at the Miradouro Portas do Sol, before ending the tour at the cathedral.
