Alfama

Just below the castle is the most visited typical Lisbon neighborhood . Within the net of typical streets and alleys of the Middle Ages, one is constantly surprised by hidden squares, churches and typical taverns of that times (cafes and taverns with food at affordable prices), and whitewashed houses adorned with iron balconies and flower pots. This former Jewish quarter is one of the most typical of the city, a kind of village in the middle of the urban jungle.
