Alfama is the oldest district of Lisbon, spreading on the slope between the St George Castle and the Tagus river.
The Lisbon earthquake in 1975 did not destroy the Alfama district, which has remained a picturesque labyrinth of narrow streets and small squares. Lately the neighbourhood has been invigorated with the renovation of the old houses and new restaurants where Fado can be enjoyed.
Visiting Alfama is to visit the architecture, the sounds and the smells of old Lisbon.
