The Alfama neighborhood in Lisbon is famous for Fado (a musical style unique to Portugal). It is one of the oldest parts of Lisbon and clings to tradition. This unique character is supported by the hilly terrain which makes it accessible only by foot. After some research my wife and I decided to walk through Alfama. We chose to take the Famous Trolley 28 to the top of Alfama and walk the steep passageways down toward the river and then across to the Cathedral.
Alfama is a lively community (as was every neighborhood in Lisbon) with a full range of shops and services.
We planned to return to the Trolley route at the Cathedral and now we could see the sides of the church as we climbed back up.
