Alfama - Lisbon Best Choice

Keeping the tradition real.

Our apartments are located in Alfama, the heart and oldest neighbourhood of Lisbon. It is one of the most distinct typical districts of the city. You will find here the place to enjoy the food, the fado and the football, but also the traditional pastry shops, the best taverns, the viewpoints, the art scenery, the picturesque streets and, of course, our majestic river. Like our ancestors, belonging to Lisbon is going for its discoveries, and you will not regret to start in its oldest point.

The Neighbourhood

Alfama is the best choice for travellers who wish to experience Authenticity, Beauty and Tradition. You will find joy and simplicity in these streets.

We are in a special neighborhood. Here you will see Lisbon from its roots, as the cobble streets and traditional houses will show. Bathed by the river Tejo, quickly, any visitor will get lost in the enchantments that one can find up the way to the Castle São Jorge. You will pass by the Sé Cathedral and take a deep breath at the viewpoint of Miradouro de Santa Lúzia. You may also see the city up from the Pantheon and, on a Tuesday or Saturday, go for a quick tour at the flea market.

During the evening, the most traditional and family-owned restaurants open their doors. Some with a fado show on the list. You will be served by genuine people, with real food, and an atmoshpheric setting for a night full of feeling and emotion, leaving in your heart the humble feeling of saudade.

And in the morning, you will be delighted with a nice bakery shop next door. Some sweet pastery which can only can be found in this neighborhood. And a wake up coffee that will awaken the senses to another beautiful day in our special city.

Here you will see how the portuguese tradition is still wildly alive.
