This oldest part of Lisbon was designed by the Moors, the tightly winding streets were built to be part defensive and part protective from the sun.

For a relatively small area, Alfama packs in the things that matter to the Portuguese. A close knit community survives within these winding streets, so come and experience a slice of the real Lisbon way of life.

What's it like in Alfama, Lisbon

Crowning the Alfama district, is the famous Castelo de São Jorge which was the royal residence until the 16th century. Accommodation around Castelo de São Jorge, offers some of the best sites of the city. On the slope of Alfama, you will find other fantastic viewpoints (miradouros) and spectacular 17th century churches. One of the most recognisable sites on the Alfama sky-line is the church of Santa Engrácia, its chalky-white dome soars above the houses. Although never used as a place of worship, it houses the tombs of some of Portugal's most historic characters, including Henry the Navigator and Vasco da Gama. When the lights go down, the melancholic sounds of Fado floats out from restaurants and taverns. This traditional music genre, is based on songs of sorrow, loss and longing.
