We went here expecting it to be ridiculously touristy and tacky. But the old town is beautiful and frequented by locals and tourists alike. Didn't feel like a tourist trap, even if it might have been!!! Some gorgeous restaurants and wine bars and very photogenic. Now home, already planning when I can go back to the Barrio Alto/Lisboa!!

It is a lovely historical place, with all the churches , museums and theaters. All these amazingly beautiful building give some romance to the neighborhood.
However, I would recommend to visit during day, but not at night. Also, you may think to eat to a different spot.
A lot of immigrants around, who do not seem to follow the basic rules for discipline and hygiene. (please check out the photos)

Lots of great restaurants and little shops that offer about anything. The views of the city are great especially in the evening or early morning. Nightlife pretty hopping, watch the odd folks that claim to offer drugs at night, they are seedy but not too threatening.

Get off the downtown streets and up to the look-outs, shops, bars and scenery of this neighbourhood as fast as you can.

Weekends are definately best but you can have fun here weekdays too. Lots of small restaurants and bars. Watch the touts and pickpockets however.
