Description

With this Alfama and Mouraria Free Walking Tour, you will discover two of the most important districts in the city of Lisbon. Through its history, art and customs, we will visit the main interest points beyond the Portuguese walls, such as the Parça da Figueira, the church of Sao Domingos o Sao Vicente de Fora and many more places. Dare to take peek from the Miradouro da Graça or Portas do Sol viewpoints as we tour around the city. 

With our English speaking guide we will learn how these districts survived the earthquake of 1755. Through a fun guided visit, the narrow alleyways of Alfama and Mouraria will reveal intriguing facts about the city. Did you know that Mouraria is the cradle of Fado music? A neighbour in the town, called Severa, sang these melodies to attract the visitors with her nostalgic songs, which ended up becoming the distinguishing feature of Portuguese music and culture.

On this Free Walking Tour, we will witness how this neighbourhood lives its musical traditions day by day, they even have a small walk of fame with the best Fado singers of all times. Get lost in its colours and, if you pay attention, you may even be able to listen to some neighbour singing on behalf of Severa some of the most authentic fados.

On the other hand, the Alfama district is one of the most traditional areas of the capital, where Jewish, Christian and Muslim people lived together. This melting pot made Alfama a unique district, one that you simply shouldn´t miss. The light of its colourful little houses, being surrounded by the freshly made food of its inhabitants and the sweetness of its small squares is the life that raises the city.

Don’t miss a single piece of what Portuguese walls hide and come to know the oldest districts of Lisbon with this Alfama and Mouraria Free Walking Tour.
