Lisbon travel tips

Alfama and Baixa

The Alfama and Baixa districts are next to each other but are different in every conceivable way,and make for a great introduction to the capital for new tourists.Baixa was completely rebuilt after the devastating 1755 earthquake and is grand,with magnificent plazas and wide shop-lined avenues.Alfama was historically the deprived district of Lisbon,where sailors and dockworkers lived in squalor amongst the maze of narrow streets that wind up from the docks to the castle.There is a lot to see in both districts and during the day there will be a lot of hills to walk up.
