Alfama is a beautiful neighbourhood in Lisbon chock full of narrow cobble streets, hidden stairways, and historic gems. My visit coincided with the celebrations of St Anthony so the whole district was festooned with garlands and decorations. Every street and alley was full of people...More

A very beautiful old area of lisbon, a must visit. However be prepared to do alot of hiking up and down the sleep slopes all around alfama.. Not a place to visit if you do not have a pair of strong legs!

The moment we were in Lisboa there was a local street party going on in the neighbourhood of Alfama. All the small streets were stuffed with people, beer and bbq's. Great party and great neighbourhood (also if there's not a party going on).

We unknowingly wandered around this area and then later rode the #28 tram around-charming side streets make this a nice way to spend an afternoon taking in the charms of Lisbon culture.

Our tour guide told us to be very careful of pick pockets here. He said they were everywhere and very sneaky. Often posing as tourists. The narrow streets and old buildings remind me of so many other European cities. Not sure there is really anything...More

I know who to ask. There is a wonderful ceramic artist with a shop on R. Guilherme Braga, 42A. Her name is Deolinda Rocha. She has the most wonderful little gift shop in Alfama...and I was a very happy customer recently.
