Information

Lisbon Tram No. 28 Ride & Walking Tour

Facing South and with an unique view over the gorgeous river Tagus, Alfama is one of the most typical quarters in Lisboa, and one of the indispensable Tourist visit in order to better know and understand Lisboa.
Alfama is situated between the São Jorge Castle and Jardim do Tabaco Dock, with narrow winding streets and backstreets, tiny alleys and gorgeous stairways: the typical Moorish quarter. In fact, during the times of Moorish domination, Alfama constituted the whole of the city, which later spread to the West (Baixa neighbourhood). Alfama became inhabited by the fishermen and the poor, and its condition as the neighbourhood of the poor continues to this day.
In Alfama one can still discover the lifestyle in a typical old-quarter of Lisboa, listening to Fado and savouring the proper charcoal grilled sardine!
