This tour follows the city's oldest walls and takes you to the Castelo São Jorge (St. Georges Castle) neighborhood, which overlooks the River Tagus and the oldest part of Lisbon. On this tour, you can go back in time to Olisipo (one of the city's former names) and visit its Roman theatre. The Romans discovered the thermal waters of Alfama, but it was the Muslims who gave the name al-hamma (thermal fountain) to the area.
This borough remains an authentic labyrinth of alleys, interior patios, stairways, and tiny squares. Here you can encounter the three major religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Alfama was also the borough of the fisherman. Its spirit is transcendent on every corner where Fado is sung. You'll also have the opportunity to visit the Lisbon Cathedral, one of the most famous landmarks of the city.
The tour will take you to the following areas: Alfama and Castelo neighborhood.
