Itinerary Details

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Se de Lisboa ( Igreja de Santa Maria Maior )

Alfama is a perfect destination to get in touch with Lisbon’s historical past and beauty. Here you can indulge in the Moorish-inspired maze of narrow streets and alleys blended with the local artisanal character. This rather secular district is crowned by the Cathedral representing the oldest building in Lisbon today. Dating back to 1147, the original construction reveals Romanesque features enriched with Gothic cloister and chapel in the 13th century. The later periods witnessed several other alterations in Baroque and Neoclassical styles that add up to the Cathedral’s overall appearance. In the aftermath of the 1755 earthquake, the Se Cathedral was rebuilt again and assumed its present-day image at the beginning of the 20th century. A stone’s throw away from the Cathedral the St. Anthony’s Church denotes another must-visit sight when in Alfama. Built in 1195 on the site where Fernando de Bulhoes or simply saint Anthony was born, this religious building also underwent many modifications prior to reaching its final design in Baroque-Rococo style in 1767. Special celebrations are held on June 13 commemorating the saint’s day, while those who are in search of love adventures might well find entertaining the tradition of coin throwing in the book of the saint’s statue in front of the church.
