Alfama, Lisbon Food Tour and Sightseeing

On this walking tour, we show you the most iconic sights such as the Sé Cathedral and the famous Portas do Sol viewpoint and also hidden spots that commonly tourists miss. You will taste Lisbon’s best foods in the spots that locals love, and you will experience Alfama the true way, granting you an opportunity to truly appreciate its value.

It will be difficult for you to believe that Alfama, now recognized the Heart of Lisbon, was once located outside of the city walls and known for its poverty and misery where only the poor and disadvantaged lived.

You will learn about Alfama’s rich history and transition from a deprived district where sailors and dock workers lived into the artisan and historical center of Lisbon.

And what better way to capture this history than by walking the backstreets and enjoying the local eats as you travel back in time.
