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 Fado, where you'll discover the best "tascas," eat delicious fresh fish and drink great wines. Discover hidden viewpoints and ancient traces of other civilizational ruins in the heart of the Portuguese capital. These are centuries-old neighborhoods that will welcome you to the very best of old Lisbon culture.
If you go to the Miradouro de Santa Luzia overlook, is it worth it to see this overlook also ? Yes, definitely come see it.
This overlook has a slightly view so it’s worth coming here also. The two overlooks are very close by. It has an outstanding view of Lisbon & the Tigus river.
It’s a must see in...
"Awesome views of Alfama and Tagus River in Lisbon!"
reviewed 2 days ago by LuizDutraNeto
On your way to the "Castelo de São Jorge" and just at the side of the "Igreja de Santa Luzia e São Brás", you will find the "Miradouro de Santa Luzia". A romantic terrace offering awesome views of Lisbon's "Alfama" quarter and the iconic Tagus River. Modern tile panels and a welcoming café complete the scene. Enjoy!
"The Saramago's museum at awesome Casa dos Bicos in Lisbon!"
reviewed yesterday by LuizDutraNeto
At the historical "Baixa Pombalina" and not far from "Praça do Comércio", you will find "Casa dos Bicos". This 16th century construction was inspired by the "Palazzo dei Diamanti", a palace in Ferrara (Italy), and combines characteristics of the Renaissance style (the spikes on its façade) with Manueline windows and door frames. On its lower levels, a set of structures...
a beautiful , quiet museum set in a period home. there were maybe six other visitors so felt like a private tour! excellent selection of tapestries, furniture , art and lighting. along with some curiosities. the docent was a historian who had compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions (in english). she was very helpful as there was...
We went here for our first pastries and coffees in Lisbon. Honestly ,they set the bar very high. The pastel de nata wwas delightful and the other breakfast foods very tasty (including the ham and cheese toasty). The food is incredibly reasonable in price and the staff so very friendly. Highly recommend to anyone in the area!

They do shared plates typically and we absolutely enjoyed the service, food and ambiance. A little out of the way, but not as much as you might think, and had a wonderful walk discovering some fun new areas of Alfama on the way there.
We had the mushrooms, tuna sandwich and sardines. All were excellent and well prepared. Definitely would...
So our airbnb was literally right next door to this place. it looked inviting so we went in. we sat on the deck out front. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. we decided to share a bunch of different things. the star of the show hands down was the Chorizo, i kid you not it is some of the...
Fantastic meal from a worderfully creative chef. Topped off by splendid front of house personnel. All in all an experience in french cuisine not to be missed. The top hotel to which i refer is the solar do castello, although i perhaps wish the peacocks were not so taken up with the peahens.
We loved the stay! We definitely will come back! It´s a lovely hotel with great service! The suite on the top ist the best! we loved the view! you can walk directly downtown. and we really liked the food in the restaurant!
I stayed for two nights last week and loved my time there. The staff was very friendly and professional. You have the option of adding breakfast and it was wonderful. The rooms were neat and clean and the location excellent in the Alfama area of Lisbon. It was so nice to come "home" to this hotel after a day of...
The service was excellent. All of the staff were very helpful and friendly.everything was very familar.
The room was small, nicely decorated and very cozy.
The view from the roof terrace is unique and the location is very central in the old town of Lisbon.
I liked the good treatment and the dream look the most.
Don't be put off by the narrow street leading to the hotel and its entrance, once inside it is modern light and airy.The staff are very friendly and helpful, they gave us some good recommendations for local restaurants.The reception area is clean and bright with comfortable chairs to lounge on and a small bar, leading off is a court yard...
"Small hotel, but well located with very efficient, competent and friendly staff."

We were there a total of 8 nights. We had a problem with a mix-up with another nearby hotel that we had booked through Expedia. The young lady at Riverside Alfama, Claudia, worked with us for nearly 4 hours to find a solution that worked for us and didn't cost us more money. In general, all the staff there was...
