Alfama, Lisbon, Portugal

Lisbon, Lisbon, Portugal
2 Kudos
Alfama is one of the oldest original neighborhoods in Lisbon. As it sits on the hill below the castle, it wasn't as affected by the 1755 earthquake and ensuing tsunami. As a result, it maintains its chaotic street plan, as opposed to the orderly downtown of Lisbon. Take the 28 tram through its narrow streets!!
