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.

ALFAMA S. RAFAEL 4 - low budget and great location

L'appartamento si trova in un angolo molto caratteristico di Lisbona ed è consigliabile per una coppia giovane amante della vita notturna dato che nella piazzetta adiacente c'è un ristorante in cui si canta il fado fino a tardi.Rumoroso.

Alfama S. Rafael 2, great location

Many will tell you that Alfama is a dangerous area, but it is not true, we were very good and we felt surrounded with sympathy and affection. The apartment is also properly close to St. Apolonia station, so it's easy to move around by undeground or rail (rail is very useful if you also want to visit Sintra or Parque des Nacioes District) The apartment directly faces a small square where there is a lovely restaurant (where they play fado every night) so you do not get bored! The house was a nest for two, very clean and equipped with what was necessary. Jorge was there to help us with anything we could need. Not recommended for those with mobility problems, there are two sets of stairs to climb and no elevator, the building is old but very well preserved. Fascinating and charming place to stay.

L'appartement est bien situé pour visiter Lisbonne
par contre l'appartement a des petits soucis de poignée surtout celle de la salle de bain et les portes des meubles de cuisine sont à revoir. ...

IMPRENSA POP low cost flat; 9 Pax; parking; views.

Ruim appartement met een perfecte ligging.
Alles is vlot verlopen met het lokale kantoortje.
Jammer dat het appartement een beetje is afgeleefd. De keukenkastdeurtjes vielen er gewoon af, de douch was beschimmeld. Het 2 persoons bed was volledig doorgezakt, en heb ik zelf terug moeten recht plooien om een beetje comfortabel te slapen. Als je een beetje met deze ongemakken kan leven, is het wel een leuke plek! Geen Airco.

VICENTE VARANDA - charm in old typical Alfama

El recibimiento muy bien, la persona que nos recibió muy amable y dispuesta a informarnos de todo.
El alojamiento cumplía con lo esperado pero la limpieza podría haber sido mejor. No tenía aspecto de haberse limpiado recientemente.
Por lo demaas la ubicación perfecta, es cierto que el tranvía 28 pasa justo por la puerta y hace ruido pero eso ya lo sabíamos y le daba encanto. En general muy recomendable exceptuando el tema de la limpieza.

Alfama S. Rafael 2, great location

Ottima posizione nel quartiere più caratteristico di Lisbona. La consegna delle chiavi è stata puntuale e precisa. La casa era abbastanza pulita, ma il divano letto molto scomodo per due adulti. Le lenzuola e gli asciugamani puliti.
