The oldest quarter in historic Lisbon,the Alfama district is dotted with architectural landmarks,including some that date back to the city’s Moorish past,but it’s the charm of the neighborhood’s meandering streets,tasty eateries and Fado clubs that make the Alfama a can’t-miss destination.Lined with Fado bars and clubs,Largo do Charariz de Dentro is the best place to go to enjoy the traditional Portuguese folk music.The plaza is just one of the many observation decks scattered around this hilly neighborhood.For an expansive view of the Alfama and the Tagus River,visitors head to Lisbon’s original Moorish gateway,Largo das Portas do Sol.
One of the best modern tourist attractions in Lisbon,the Oceanarium was built as part of the improvements the city made when it hosted the 1998 World Exposition.Located in the Parque das Nações in northeast Lisbon,the Lisbon Oceanarium is the largest indoor aquarium in Europe.It’s organized into four unique habitats,with each representing a different ocean.In addition to all manner of sea life ranging from sharks and sting rays to penguins and otters,flora and fauna from each ecosystem are represented as well.Strolling pasts tank of colorful fish with tropical birds flitting overhead offers an immersive experience not to be missed.
