Come along! We haven't the time to delay! Come with me, and let me take you on a little stroll through my favourite part of Lisbon, the Alfama District.
The Alfama's roots linger in the Muslim occupation of Lisbon which dated from around 711 - 1108. Originally called Al-Hamma, this is Lisbon's oldest district and area in which the Muslim influence is still felt and seen today. Alfama still retains its labyrinth of towering houses, narrow winding streets and intimidatingly steep narrow stairwells, that both do a grand job of confusing visitors.
