Alfama is the oldest historic section of Lisbon. The cobblestone streets add a wonderful charm.
This 12th century Moorish fortress is perhaps the most visible landmark in Lisbon. It can been seen for most downtown locations.
If you have any interest in nautical history this museum is a must. It celebrates Portugal's tremendous contributions to maritime history. The museum has displays starting with Portugal's most ancient times to its modern navy.
This is one of several historic landmarks in this area. You can easily make a full day of visiting Belem.
Here you can visit the tomb of Vasco da Gama and other famous Portuguese personages. The highly carved walls are most interesting.
If walking is not your thing, you should consider taking Tram 28 to view the many landmarks and sites in the Alfama district.
This is the main square along the waterfront of downtown Lisbon. From here you can access most major sections of the city. It is also one of the nicest waterfront locations to just hang out and enjoy the scenery.
If you have limited time and want a completely professional tour guide to show you around, this is the company.
The pastries created here are a local legend. While they are available all over the city, there is nothing better than eating them warm at the bakery.
This restaurant was one of our favorite hidden gems in the Alfama district. The staff are very friendly and the food is exceptional. I particularly liked their duck.
This is a fun restaurant located in the Alfama district. The wait staff are very good and somewhat comedic in their antics.
