Very old streets. Each one with tagged walls. Typical tramway. But At the evening, hordes of drunked people invade the quarters. For myself, i stopped to see drunked people as fun at 20.

If you love old tiles and mosaics, this is the area for you! The buildings and architecture are the cornerstones that make up this beautiful area. Loved it!

This is the central district of Lisbon, right in the heart, with the amalgamation of many neighbourhoods. Definitely worth a visit. Many good restaurants and cafes in this area.

We stayed at an apartment in this area. The place we stayed was not comfortable.But I can say this area is the heart of Lisboa.It is full of tapas bars, restaurants, shops, supermarkets. All the buildings reflect the historical beauty of Lisboa.

Enjoy a cocktail, discover a jazz club, hit the dance
floor or simply grab a beer and catch up with your
friends in the street: Bairro Alto, Bica and Cais do
Sodré are the core of it all. Amazing rooftops,
restaurants, cafes, bars, art galleries, museums and
theaters abound. Start off by admiring the river from
the Santa Catarina belvedere, have a cocktail at
PARK's rooftop bar, try a typical Portuguese steak, or
