About this event

Wander around the steep, narrow streets of what people often call the village within the city. Alfama is one of the few districts in Lisbon not destroyed by the earthquake of 1755.

Decorated in beautiful ‘azulejos’ (tiles), 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!

We'll see Lisboa's most emblematic landmarks, like the Rossio Square, Dona Maria II Theatre, Sao Domingos Church, Figueira Square, Sao Jorge Castle, Portas do Sol viewpoint, Sé Cathedral.

Tie your most comfortable shoes and get lost in time in historical Lisbon with our expert tour guides.

Meet us every day at D. Pedro IV Square (Rossio). You can find our yellow shirted team with yellow umbrellas near the statue, right in the middle.
