Owner description: 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.

Nice typical quarter of Lisbon, full of activities during the night.
Colorful houses, many broken buildings and several beggars on the street.

Kept coming back to the area for the atmosphere and the wonderful cafés. Take the tram for an overall feel.

it's wonderful to walk the tiny little backstreets, up the hills, round the Cathedrals, and through the bars and restaurants of this beautiful old quarter. Loved it !

My favorite neighborhood in Lisbon, so typical and old. I get lost on those streets for more than once, and I'm glad I did a second visit. Recommended at least half a day in there to see it allall
