“A must see”
Reviewed February 5, 2014

A historical part of town. Do not miss it. Walk through the small streets with steps, without planning, just let yourself be surprised.

“Great for walks”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

Walk up and down the hills, and take a break at one of the small cafés on the street. Beautiful area with a lot of charm.

“Just slenter around”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

We went up with the little tram and jumped out in the middle of Alfama. we walked around all day and enjoyed this area a lot. You see old people with beautifull faces, small alleys, particual squares and hear Fado comming out of the houses. A must do during your stay in Lissabon !

“Amazing”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

Stayed right in the heart of Alfama in a cute little studio. Close to bars, restaurants and sights. Plently of steps so you need to be fairly fit. Fado music is amazing and can be heard every evening.

“Se cathedral”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

The cathedral near the castle is worth seeing. We thought it was beautiful and not run down as some other travellers suggested here.
