ALFAMA

By Annabel Parsons

Alfama is a quaint, charming, medieval district overflowing with charm.  It is the oldest neighbourhood in Lisbon, and the second oldest in Europe. It’s winding, tiled streets survived the earthquake, fire and Tsunami of 1755 and they remain in the same format as before the disaster until this day. 

 

Go for the stunning view points, street art and river views, balconies strewn with hanging laundry and the smell of grilled fish around every corner. Try some authentic Portuguese food and enjoy the ambience of this magical quarter just 5 mins walking from our door. (The We Love F****** Tourists Hostel, Baixa).
