Description

As far back as the 5th century, Alfama was populated by the Visigoths. It was an upper-class suburban area during the Moorish period. It returned to a working-class, fisherman folk quarter after earthquakes took down many of its mansions. Visit during the Festas dos Santos Populares in June for an authentic rough-and-tumble atmosphere.
