The Alfama District of Lisbon

1 hour virtual event

Event short description

Together we will be exploring one of the oldest districts in Lisbon: Alfama. The name Alfama comes from Al Hammm, the root word for hammam, a bathing space during the Islamic occupation. We will find out why the neighborhood has received such name, and why and how the Islamic presence lasted for about 400 years in the city that is nowadays the capital of Portugal. We will visit the viewpoint of Portas do Sol (Doors of the Sun) and while walking down the narrow streets of Alfama, we will find out more about St. Vincent and his connection to the city's history, the Tagus river and its importance for the city’s development), St. Anthony’s festivities in June and our traditional song, Fado, ending our walk by the museum dedicated to this immaterial world heritage.
