The Alfama neighborhood is known as one of the most traditional and mythical places in Lisbon. What began as a fishing district has now become one of the most charming areas of the city.
Let yourself be accompanied by our specialized guides on a 2 and a half hour free walking tour that will take you closer to the history through Roman ruins, Visigothic towers, Arab walls and Medieval castles. Basically, the oldest part of the city.
Step latent streets of history and legends that will help us to get in touch with that cultural diversity so characteristic of Lisbon, a harmonious coexistence of Jews, Christians and Muslims. Indeed, we will go inside the Cathedral (Sé de Lisboa), we will enter in a unique and traditional private ‘pátio’ of Alfama, and of course, we will finish the tour with the most stunning view of the Tagus River in Portas do Sol viewpoint.
