ALFAMA – THE OLDEST QUARTER

Is the oldest district of Lisbon, spreading on the slopes between the Castle of Lisbon and the Tagus river. Its name comes from the Arabic Al-hamma that means fountains or baths.Surrounded my amazing terraces, Alfama seduces its visitors with its most known personality trait: Fado. Home to the original Fado, Alfama presents you with rustic taverns in every corner, with profound lyrics in every window, with love songs in every alley…and if you’re lucky enough to visit Lisbon in June, Alfama is the epicenter of Lisbon city festivities: Europe’s best city festival.This Area of Lisbon is perfect for families: right on old downtown district, minutes away from the subway, up in the hill away from tourists crowds close to parks and secluded esplanade overlooking the Tagus river.

Experience Alfama is more than visiting an old quarter, is living Lisbon at its best.
