Rent an apartment in Lisbon Alfama for a holiday
If you want steep alleys plunging towards the Tage, labyrinths of stone
staircases overlooking small squares shaded by trees, colored frontages
with windows from which fado notes escape, look no further and unpack
your suitcases in this neighborhood.Renting an apartment in the Alfama means plunging into the original Lisbon. The neighborhood survived the earthquake of 1755 and its steep streets, where you will be still able to read the Moorish influence, have been well preserved. You can easily see the difference with the neighboring district of Baixa, with perfectly parallel and perpendicular streets, which were rebuilt at the end of the 18th century under the orders of the Marquis de Pombal. Do not look for geometry in the Alfama: it is the history and the life that have indicated the drawing of the alleys. Narrow, tortuous, sometimes quite shady (a blessing in summer), they used to be a favourite place for sailors and the rabble, who haunted the taverns. Now well rehabilitated, the district welcomes many tourists. Privilege the high floors: many properties offer a small balcony or terrace. The view of the ocher roof mosaic of the district and the river is an enchantment for the senses. Here and there pierce the pink of a bougainvillea and the colorful accents of the azulejos, while escape, from the bars on the ground floor, the bitter sweet notes of the fado. As the neighborhood is not the easiest for traffic, you may need to leave your car a few blocks away. It is the price of tranquility! Passionate about heritage, do not forget to visit the magnificent Sé Cathedral. With My Home In Lisbon, live in a postcard by booking your apartment rental in Lisbon, in the Alfama district.
