Wonderful sights delight walkers at every turn in this culturally rich and charming part of Lisbon, which through its architecture reminds visitors of its Visigothic roots, Arabic influence and fishing port heritage.

This is what Lisboa is all about. The neighbor is one of must visits in Lisboa, and of course a lot of attractions are located in this area. It's a hilly area so make sure you are dressed comfortably and have good walking shoes on.
If you want to be close to local people and see how they live, Alfama is right place to visit.

Explore narrow streets and alleyways, small cafes and, of course, the internationally acclaimed Fado music. The earth-shattering Great Earthquake of 1755 destroyed most of the city but the contiguous neighborhoods of Mouraria, Castelo and Alfama remained standing to this day. These neighborhoods represent Lisbon at its historical best. The cool breeze of the Tagus river will take you up the hills to the sound of
Fado, where you'll discover the best "tascas," eat delicious fresh fish and drink great wines. Discover hidden viewpoints and ancient traces of other civilizational ruins in the heart of the Portuguese capital. These are centuries-old neighborhoods that will welcome you to the very best of old Lisbon culture.

Well, I guess your question is a rhetorical one. You give the answer. The police advises all tourists not carry great amounts of money during visits to sights and when needed to carry it very near to the body. Not in exterior pockets, purses, etc.. Sadly this happens nowadays everywhere.
I also suggest a complaint to the police, so that they feel obliged to increase control and vigilance.
I' sorry for your loss.
I know who to ask. There is a wonderful ceramic artist with a shop on R. Guilherme Braga, 42A. Her name is Deolinda Rocha. She has the most wonderful little gift shop in Alfama...and I was a very happy customer recently.
