Some pictures of Alfama, in Lisbon, from my quick weekend trip. Prepare to walk a lot if you want to visit this area of the city. The uphill and narrow cobbled streets make the visit difficult but enjoyable anyway. The best way I found to orient myself was going up all the time. At some points there are miradouros which are perfect for a stop and a coffee. The views from those are breath taking, literally. At the end of the day, when I felt a bit lost, instead of trying google maps on my mobile, I just asked someone for directions. I know it sounds silly, but it was also a way for me to try my almost forgotten Portuguese skills.
