The Alfama Quarter is the oldest one in Lisbon, and it was founded by the Arabs who named it “Al-hama” (the fountains). It is difficult to believe that this humble neighborhood was once the most desirable quarter of Lisbon. For the Moors, the tightly packed alleyways around the fortified castle comprised the whole city.
The buildings survived the 1755 earthquake and although there are no Moorish houses still standing, the quarter retains its kashbah-like-layout. The true charm of these quarters lies in its narrow steep streets ending in sunny squares from which there are stairways leading to typical streets and flowery alleys and fountains. This is where you can find the most genuine traditional commerce, far away from the big hypermarkets, with neighborhood groceries, fruit stands, modest restaurants, and all purpose stores. The only way to get to know these quarters is to stroll through them. Embark on this adventure, let your intuition guide you and get lost in these streets and alleys to the sound of Fado.
Above Alfama the imposing, majestic and sober Castelo de São Jorge (Castle of Saint Jorge), crowns Lisbon´s most important eastern hill. This natural vantage point, was a defensive stronghold and royal palace until the end of the 16th century.
Other Attractions are a few steps away. You will need to climb just a few streets to find yourself in front of the Pantheon, or at the Flea Market (If you are interested in antique stuff and second hand bargains you can find almost everything at the Feira da Ladra flea Market every Saturday and Tuesday in Campo de Santa Clara). To eat there are quite a few cheap typical Portuguese tascas around, but if you are more into sophisticated stuff don´t miss the Bica do Sapato restaurant (co-owned by the actor John Malkovich), Lisbon´s hippest and trendiest restaurant, or the Faz Figura restaurant featuring Portuguese specialties and an impressive city and river views. Here, the visitor will be also close to the most recent and trendiest nightlife routes, beginning in the new Alfama fado parlours and ending up in Clube Ferroviário or at the famous and trendy Lux nightclub.

Reviews for this host's other properties
The apartment was very good for our stay - big rooms and nice outdoor terrace at the back. It is well equipped and fairly quiet for the location. Jorge´s colleague met us when we arrived.
Location of the apartment is good, the rooms are very nice,
Kitchen could (not sufficient for up to 9 people.) Use some more features ...
Jorge is very helpful and nice ...
except for minor deficiencies in the kitchen well everything .....
Lage der Wohnung ist gut, die Zimmer sind sehr schön,
Küche könnte etwas mehr Ausstattung ( nicht ausreichend für bis zu 9 Pers. ) vertragen...
Jorge ist sehr hilfreich und nett...
bis auf die kleinen Mängel in der Küche alles BESTENS.....
Good morning, it's been a very good morning in the apartment. All comfortable, well located and friendly in serving arrival. Recommended. It will be the first choice for another next stay in Lisbon.
Buenos días, han sido unos muy buenos días en el apartamento. Todo confortable, muy bien situado y cordiales en la atención a la llegada. Recomendable. Será la primera opción para otra próxima estancia en Lisboa.
very large apartment - centrally located - very friendly and reliable agency - all the best - clean and tidy - not brand new but for a few days completely ok
sehr große Wohnung - zentral gelegen - sehr freundliche und zuverlässige Agentur - alles bestens - sauber und ordentlich - nicht mehr ganz neu aber für ein paar tage völlig ok
Very nice, newly decorated, spacious and quiet apartment.
Everything is there, whether in the kitchen, bedroom or bathroom.
Ideal for two people but can also accommodate three or four people.
Suggestion --- a second access to the bathroom., As the third person must through the bedroom. Sorry!
The apartment is good, bus lines and shopping facilities are just around the corner.
It's worth it, we felt very comfortable, every time again.
Thanks ... Heinz, Doris and Theresa
Sehr schöne, neu eingerichtete, geräumige und ruhige Wohnung.
Alles da, ob in der Küche, Schlafzimmer oder im Bad.
Ideal für zwei Personen, aber auch Platz für drei oder vier Personen.
Verbesserungsvorschlag---einen zweiten Zugang zum Bad., denn die dritte Person muss durchs Schlafzimmer. Leider!
Die Wohnung liegt gut, Busslinien und Einkaufsmöglichkeit sind direkt um die Ecke.
Es lohnt sich, wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt, jeder Zeit wieder.
Danke...Heinz, Doris und Theresa
We spent a weekend in ete floor. Very well located and comfortable. We liked everything, especially the balcony / deck area!
Pasamos un fin de semana en ete piso. Muy bien localizado y comodo. Nos gustó todo, especialmente el balcon/area de terraza!
Wir wurden sehr freundlich empfangen und eingewiesen. Die Wohnung liegt sehr zentral und war uns ein gutes zu Hause für die Zeit in Lissabon.
Die Wohnung ist stadtnah, die Wohnung 2 Straßen von der Metro entfernt.
Es gibt einen Aufzug in den 3. Stock. Die Wände waren frisch gestrichen, die 2 Bäder funktionsfähig und gut. Es war frische Bettwäsche da, die Küche sauber und für einen Kurzurlaub ausreichend. Man konnte am Abend bequem am Küchentisch sitzen, außerdem gab es ein Wintergarten, der recht gemütlich war.
Jorge war zuständig für die Wohnung, es war möglich, das Gepäck zu hinterlegen bei der frühen Ankunft und vor dem Abflug. Insgesamt eine günstige und empfehlenswerte Adresse.
Boa localização. Casa bem decorada.
