Private Alfama Walking Tour
US$ 190.98
Overview
Explore the historic Alfama district of Lisbon with a local guide on a 2.5-hour walking tour and learn more about the history and culture of one of the only areas in the city not destroyed by the 1755 earthquake.
What to Expect

Discover the enchanting ‘village within a city’ belonging to the true Portuguese people!

Alfama is not only one of the oldest and most picturesque districts in Lisbon, but also was one of the only neighbourhoods, which was not destroyed in the 1755 earthquake. And so, the city still has kept its quaint familiar charm. In fact, the moniker of this neighbourhood comes from the Arabic ‘Al-hamma’ meaning ‘hot fountains’ or ‘baths’.

Decorated in beautiful ‘azulejos’, the steep winding alleys of this neighbourhood give way to breath-taking views of a sea of terracotta roofs and the Tagus River. The aromas of traditional Portuguese cuisine, the echoes of Fado tunes, and the elderly Portuguese locals chattering, all make this neighbourhood one of the most authentic in Lisbon!

Our tour begins in Rossio and passes some key areas before heading into the heart of Alfama where you will also make a stop at the Miradouro Portas do Sol, before ending the tour at the cathedral.
