COMPLIMENTARY PICK UP FROM LISBON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT.


Alfama is the oldest and most traditional of Lisbon’s neighbourhoods. Its existence can be traced back to the period of Moorish domination from the 8th century onwards. Its name comes from the Arabic Al-hamma, meaning fountains or baths and referring to the numerous water sources that used to exist and feed various fountains.


Spreading along the south east slope that descends from the mediaeval São Jorge Castle, meeting with the River Tejo and just 10 minutes walking from the apartment, we are able to find some of the most important touristy sites and monuments that Lisbon has to offer. These include Sé Patriarcal de Lisboa, Lisbon’s Cathedral and oldest church dating back to 1147 and also seat of The Archdiocese, The Monastery of São Vicente de Fora which, is a 17th century, mannerist styled masterpiece, The National Pantheon, where some of Portugal’s most important historical characters are buried or The National Museum of Fado. Other notable places of interest are The Casa dos Bicos, famous for its Gothic Architecture from the 16th century and Nobel Prize winner José de Sousa Saramago’s Foundation Headquarters, Terreiro do Paço, the royal residence from the 16th century until the 18th or the flea market known as Feira da Ladra or 'Thieves' Market'.

Alfama is also one of the old neighbourhoods where Fado runs through the blood of its people. As the purest expression of the soul and the feelings of the Portuguese, Fado can and should be enjoyed in the many restaurants and bars everywhere or simply heard through an open window in a private house.

There are several ways to discover the secrets of Alfama. Walking calmly through its picturesque labyrinth of narrow streets and small squares or taking a ride on the famous number 28 tram are two of the most enjoyable. And the breathtaking views from Santa Luzia and Portas do Sol overlooking Lisbon and The Tejo River should not be missed.

Today, Alfama is a vibrant neighbourhood with its recovered architectural heritage that combines history with a cosmopolitan feel, offering a variety of restaurants, bars and craft shops that will delight those who visit us.

Welcome to Alfama.
