This apartment is located in Alfama, the medieval Moorish neighborhood where an emerging cosmopolitanism mixes with the "natives" day-to-day life. It is a village in the heart of the city, due to the fact that most of Alfama's residents have lived here their entire lives and retain a strong sense of community.
Be surprised by Alfama's narrow cobblestone alleyways, stairs, and squares, built on a rock-hill that was responsible for its survival after the big 1755 earthquake that destroyed most of the medieval city. A walk through this old-fashioned residential neighborhood is now a step back in time. It is an ideal place to explore hidden places, stunning views over the city, the River Tagus, restaurants, Fado houses or even to dance and eat sardines during the popular June festivals. Here you can find numerous little grocery shops, taverns, and small restaurants - most having no more than 3 tables.
At the edge of Alfama, Lisbon's renowned flea market, the Feira da Ladra, is held in the Campo de Santa Clara every Tuesday and Saturday. You are also very close to the Fado and Portuguese guitar Museum, situated at Largo do Chafariz de Dentro. It is a place where you can have a historical visit through the most the traditional Portuguese music -Fado- and famous Portuguese fado singers like Amalia Rodrigues, Carlos do Carmo and Mariza.
If you decide to go further up, passing Alfama you will find an astonishing view of the city from Miradouro da Graça or from the one where the church of St. Maria do Monte da Graça is located.
We will welcome you with a bottle of wine.
