This is what Lisboa is all about. The neighbor is one of must visits in Lisboa, and of course a lot of attractions are located in this area. It's a hilly area so make sure you are dressed comfortably and have good walking shoes on.

Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria
Explore narrow streets and alleyways, small cafes and,
of course, the internationally acclaimed Fado music.
The earth-shattering Great Earthquake of 1755
destroyed most of the city but the contiguous
neighborhoods of Mouraria, Castelo and Alfama remained
standing to this day. These neighborhoods represent
Lisbon at its historical best. The cool breeze of the
Tagus river will take you up the hills to the sound of

I know who to ask. There is a wonderful ceramic artist with a shop on R. Guilherme Braga, 42A. Her name is Deolinda Rocha. She has the most wonderful little gift shop in Alfama...and I was a very happy customer recently.
