If you don’t have plenty of time for sightseeing, below my proposition of the short walk around Alfama. Alfama is the oldest and one of the most amazing district of Lisbon. It is located on one of seven hills of Lisbon, right below the St. George's Castle. However, it is also worth mentioning the tram 28, which goes through Alfama, because it can be an option for people who don’t like to walk or people who want to as soon as it possible explore Alfama from inside of the historic tram.
- Heading from the Baixa district towards Alfama, our first stop will be Igreja de Santo Antonio de Lisboa. The church dedicated to Saint Antonio. Acording to the tradition, the church was built in the place where he was born.
- Then it is worth going to Se Cathedral which is considered as one of the most important monuments and one of the oldest churches in Lisbon. Entrance to the cathedral is free. An additional ticket must be purchased for the vault and cloister.
- Climbing further. It is worth stopping at the viewpoint- Miradouro de Santa Luzia which is considered one of the most popular spots among tourists. From this place there is a beautiful view of the Tagus river and Alfama.
- It is also worth going to Castelo de Sao Jorge which was built in the 10th century by the Moors. Beautiful views guaranteed.
- Going further you cannot miss the next viewpoint which is Miradouro das Portas do Sol. From here you will see one of the most beautiful and well-known views of Alfama spreeds of roofs of buildings, winding streets and the dome of the National Pantheon.
