There are much more than Sao Jorge castle to see in Alfama. Much narrow streets, interesting shops, local bars.
i just love this little neighbourhood with it narrow little streets and alleys, where no matter which map you've bought, you will surely get lost!! but don't worry! that's the beauty of Alfama. put away the map, listen to people talking, listen to the fado music comig from the cafeterias, feel the smell of the fresh flowers everywhere...

I stayed in a hostel in Alfama so walked around the area a lot during my stay. There are some really amazing views to take in just walking around. It feels like a real, authentic Portuguese neighborhood. It would be a real shame to not check it out while in Lisbon as it's so close to the city centre.
You can reach it by foot after the last stop of the blue line metro or by tram. The atmosphere and is great and each building deserves careful observation of the architectural details and the tiles that cover the facades as is traditional Portuguese. Prices for souvenirs and foods are generally higher than the rest of Lisbon.
Really nice historic area with lovely narrow streets, castle and cobbles. It offers some historic buildings, shops, some nice cafes and wonderful viewing points. Worth checking out when in Lisbon. However, be prepared for some steep hills. If you have mobility problems, consider taking public or private transport as the streets are cobbled and very steep.
Like the curiosity the Alfama neighborhood brings to you. Has great cozy restaurants and bars. Incredible mirador to relax and hear music. The Se Cathedral is also in this area and not to be missed.
This is a very charming area of Lisbon. Although you are in city centre area of Lisbon, you feel like you are in a village. There are no vehicles around (the streets are too narrow), there are orange/clementine trees around, people talking to each other through their windows. Take plenty of water and wear comfortable shoes as the area is... More
Great little area during the day. Old, irregular and narrow street plan make you feel like you are transported back in time. Several nice churches within a short distance from each other. Saint George's Castle is open late. Old electric/rail street cars add to the old flavor of the neighborhood. Also has nice outdoor cafes.
It's a nice old area of Lisboa, nice houses, monuments, cafes, planty of tourists. The area wich you have to visit if you are in Lisboa
