What to Expect
Discover the monuments of Alfama, one of the oldest and most atmospheric districts of Lisbon, and the only part of the city to survive the Great Earthquake of 1755. The neighborhood is a silent witness to the past glories and tragedy of Portugal, from the fall of empires to the birth of the new nation.

Wander the narrow streets and ornate squares that echoed to the sounds of Phoenician traders, calls to prayer, and the rattle of historic trams. Here you will find the heart of fado music, a sound of longing and loss that gives voice to the languages, cultures, and religions that have all contributed to the district’s rich sense of community.

Walk down Moorish streets and see some of the Roman foundations of Lisbon. Follow the silvery banks of the River Tagus, and marvel at the sun-bleached sandstone walls of the Castle of St George. Make your ascent to the city summit gently to let your breath be taken away by the amazing views.
