Overview

Imagine strolling down the picturesque streets of a typical Portuguese neighborhood, filled with alleys of the old Moorish quarter. We are welcome you to Alfama where you’ll be amazed by the astonishing viewpoints of the city and feel just like a local in no time!

Join us on this free walking tour where we would love to show you around the historical sights in Lisbon. Meet the steep winding alleys, the hidden landmark churches, the old ladies sitting out, the Fado tunes, and the breath-taking views.

Your tour will be a mix of local history and culture. Walk along the Alfama district a labyrinth of stairs, alleyways, and side streets, an old Moorish neighborhood.

Did you know that Alfama is the oldest neighborhood in Lisbon? Alfama known for its fado houses, and the popular festivals of saints, particularly St. Anthony. Discover the foundations of the ancient city walls and see how this affected the architecture of medieval houses that still stand in Alfama.

Wander to a spectacular view that overlooks Lisbon, including a stop at the gates of the beautiful São Jorge’s Castle and amazing viewpoint Portas do Sol. Learn about the legend of Lisbon’s patron saint and admire views from Portas do Sol Square over the Tagus River, the south bank, and the maze-like Alfama neighborhood below.

Stroll down to the River Tagus, where you will have enough time to take photos of Casa dos Bicos. And Praça do Comércio (Commerce Square), one of the most emblematic symbols of Lisbon, your last stop where your route will come to an end.

By the end of the tour, you will know more about this city than the locals!
