Alfama is the second oldest neighbourhood in Europe. It sits in one of Lisbon hills (the city is known for its 7 hills), with the castle sitting on top with a privileged view of the city and the Tagus river.

There is no better place to feel the old city vibe than in Alfama. Part of its charm is actually its apparent degradation, intricate streets and the sound of fado music in every corner. Here, you will not be amazed with magnificent monuments. Instead, you will be delighted with the simplicity and the genuinity of the people and the spectacular view points.

With our Alfama Free Tour, you will get to know Alfama, and the surrounding neighbourhoods, as one of our friends visiting.

We will tell you its secrets and legends, the reason why there’s so many tiles and why do the streets form a kind of labyrinth. But don’t worry, you will only get lost if you want to!
