Trip Planner : Europe / Portugal / Central Portugal / Lisbon District / Lisbon / Neighborhoods / Alfama
Categories: Neighborhoods, Tourist Spots
Wander through the oldest district in town, Alfama, known for its high concentration of Fado bars and restaurants. Set between Sao Jorge Castle and Tejo river, it's a good choice of walking areas for tourists. During Moorish rule, this was the entire city. The picturesque side streets and squares survived the 1755 Lisbon earthquake and today are beautiful tourist attractions. Stroll down Rua do Barao, stop into quaint shops, and listen to Fado--a musical style native to the region--at a local bar. As you explore, you'll notice historic sites and several churches along the way, until you reach the walls of the 12th century Lisbon Cathedral. Use our Lisbon tour planner to arrange your visit to Alfama and other attractions in Lisbon.
