About this event

Discover the charming of the ‘village within a city’ that belongs to the true Portuguese people!

Alfama is not only one of the oldest and most picturesque districts in Lisbon, but also was one of the only neighborhoods which were not destroyed in the 1755 earthquake. And so, the city still has kept its quaint familiar charm. In fact, the moniker of this neighborhood comes from the Arabic ‘Al-hamma’ meaning ‘hot fountains’ or ‘baths’.

Decorated with beautiful ‘azulejos’, the steep winding alleys of this neighborhood give way to breath-taking views of a sea of terracotta roofs and the Tagus River. The aromas of traditional Portuguese cuisine, the echoes of Fado tunes, and the elderly Portuguese locals chattering, all make this neighborhood one of the most authentic in Lisbon!

The tour begins in Rossio and goes through some key areas before heading into the heart of Alfama, where you will also make a stop at the Miradouro Portas do Sol, before ending the tour at the Cathedral.

This tour is available in English and Spanish.
