Lisbon had become, by the end of 2019, one of Europe’s hottest destinations. Covid-19 has curtailed all our travelling, there’s no doubt, however it won’t be making Lisbon any less photogenic. It was a couple of weeks ago where I shared my photos of Belem – you can see them HERE. But an equally beautiful part of town is the area where we stayed – Alfama.
Alfama is a beautiful area over one large hill in Lisbon. It has tram tracks running up and around it, and from one side has great views over the Tagus River. There are columns and marble and even a pool. Not sure if you can swim in it, but it’s there.
It’s a bustling and popular place. At the top of the hill is the somewhat epic Castelo Sao Jorge (the Castle of St George). We really enjoyed staying in this part of town, and I hope you enjoy my photos of the area!

Thanks so much for stopping by today – take care – and May the Journey Never End!
