With its steep and narrow cobbled streets, Alfama is one of the places that is most worth visiting in Lisbon.
Full of tradition and history, it is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Lisbon. Historically associated with Fado and popular marches, Alfama overflows with culture and tradition. Fado is so rooted in Alfama that sometimes it is possible to hear artists singing in the streets and enjoy unique moments that make us fall in love with this neighborhood. Along its narrow streets you can find shops selling handicrafts and souvenirs, as well as restaurants and cafes full of history where music, especially Fado but not only, and gastronomy make a night out in unique and memorable moments.
In Alfama, you can stroll through its streets aboard the famous and historic Tram 28, which makes one of the most complete circuits in Lisbon. Passing by the Castelo de São Jorge, which has stood on top of the hill since the 11th century, facing the Tagus River. One of the most fantastic views of Lisbon is in Alfama: the Miradouro da Graça, where you can enjoy the wonderful view over the Tagus and Lisbon.
