- Alfama is the most emblematic quarter and one of the most rewarding for walkers and photographers thanks to its medieval alleys and outstanding views. Due to its dense bedrock foundation, it survived the destructive 1755 earthquake and has managed to restore its old-fashioned neighborhood, which allows visitors to take a step back in time.
- It is also near from everything that you should see in the city center.
- Alfama is also famous for its Fado bars. These are bars that play Fado. Literally meaning “fate”, Fado is a known music genre in Portugal.
