The Location - Alfama
Visiting Alfama is to visit the architecture, the sounds and the smells of old Lisbon. This is one of the most typical quarters of Lisbon. On its narrow and winding streets you'll find the hidden treasure of Alfama and on its steep stairs you will be able to breathe the soul of Lisbon. Alfama is located in a hill over the Tejo and going through it´s small streets you will find unique views over the river. In this area of Lisbon are located the one of the bests viewpoints in the city: Portas do Sol, Santa Luzia, Santa Clara.
Don´t forget that in Alfama you can find tree hotspot´s of Lisbon: The must see Castle of S. Jorge, the new Fado Museum and the Nacional Pantheon, were you can learn more about some Portuguese figures that built our history.
The area is well communicated with several buses: 712 and 34; metro station: blue line, and train station. The tram is within 500 meters of the apartment.
In Alfama, it is still possible to see Roman and Arab remains, two of the most dominant civilizations in Lisbon's past. There are narrow streets resulting from Muslim culture, guided by individualistic rules where public spaces are not important. The narrow streets are a mark of the Coran, where little value is given to facades but a much greater value is given to the interiors of the houses. Alfama was once home to the unlucky, delinquents or non-grateful and due to its proximity with the river it was also the home of many sailors.
That's not much more to say... it's just perfect and near everything you may need: bares, night clubs, restaurants, shops, pharmacy...
