Alfama is the oldest and one of the most typical neighbourhoods of the city of Lisbon. Its name derives from Arabic al-Hamma, which means baths or fountains.
The most spectacular views over Alfama are the public walkway formed by the viewpoints of the Portas do Sol and Santa Luzia.
Alfama is a neighbourhood very peculiar in resembling an old village not only in aspect as by having a relatively small and close community. The neighbourhood is frequented daily by Portuguese and foreign tourists, being considered as the safest in the whole city of Lisbon.
