Tour description

The Alfama neighborhood is known as one of the most traditional and mythical places in Lisbon. What began as a fishing district has now become one of the most charming areas of the city. Let yourself be accompanied by our specialized guides on a 2 and a half hour free walking tour that will take you closer to the history through Roman ruins, Visigothic towers, Arab walls and Medieval castles. Basically, the oldest part of the city. Step latent streets of history and legends that will help us to get in touch with that cultural diversity so characteristic of Lisbon, a harmonious coexistence of Jews, Christians and Muslims. Indeed, we will go inside the Cathedral (Sé de Lisboa), we will enter in a unique and traditional private ‘pátio’ of Alfama, and of course, we will finish the tour with the most stunning view of the Tagus River in Portas do Sol viewpoint. An authentic tour, for a neighborhood without pretensions… Just open your eyes and enjoy, because music and life are the protagonists here. Are you going to miss it?

I thought the tour guide was really friendly and told some great stories. However I was disappointed that we didn’t really walk very far and the tour ended a little earlier than anticipated. There seemed to be a lot of lengthy storytelling but after exploring on my own later I just discovered that there was so much more that the tour could’ve covered within Alfama and i just wondered why we hadn’t done so.

Joao was knowledgable and engaging guide. He offered detailed insights into the history, culture and current life of Alfama. Any and all questions were warmly received. We could not have asked for a more.

Great tour to the alfama. Telma was a very good guide. She was well prepared and it was great fun walking with her in the alfama. She showed us very interesting places and supplied us with interesting stories of history. We really enjoyed walking with her. Thank you Telma for this great walk to Alfama. Edith and Stephan
