Alfama is the oldest and one of the most typical districts of the city of Lisbon. Alfama includes the former parishes of São Miguel, Santo Estêvão, São Vicente de Fora and part of two streets of the old Freguesia da Sé: Rua Barão do and Rua São João da Praça. Its name derives from the Arabic 'alfa Maa' which means' a thousand sources. In a territorial reorganization district is located, since November 2012, in the new Freguesia Santa Maria Maior.
Rua Barão do is one of the streets of the old Freguesia the Sé, which starts at Rua São João da Praça (which was once drawn the door of the Alfama) and ends Rua Augusto Rosa (the level of the wall of the Sé). Pastor Luis Macedo defends the thesis that the place name 'Rua Barão' is that João Fernandes da Silveira, 1st Baron of Alvito, Minister of Portuguese kings Dom Afonso V and Dom João II lived there.
This area is internationally known for its fado bars. The area is located between the Castelo de São Jorge and the Tagus River, it contains many important historical attractions and restaurants.
The Alfama is a very special area, it looks like an ancient village where everyone knew each other and compliment each other daily. The area is considered one of the safest and busiest in the city and is known for its restaurants and homes, as well as the Popular Saints celebrations, especially those of Saint Anthony of Padua, from June 12 to 13

Beau panorama sur ce célèbre quartier de Lisbonne. Tu as bénéficié d'une belle lumière qui met bien en valeur l'intensité des couleurs, et notamment des toits. Compo très réussie. D'où as-tu pris cette photo ? Lisbonne fait partie des destinations que je compte visiter et j'aimerais tant pouvoir profiter d'une telle vue.
