Alfama is the oldest district of Lisbon and it is a delight to explore the maze of narrow streets which climb up from the Rio Tejo to the Castle of Săo Jorge. The steep ramshackle streets of medieval buildings have not altered since their construction, both surviving the destructive 1755 earthquake and the more recent trend of modernisation. Alfama was historically the seedy and impoverished neighbourhood of Lisbon but today is a favourite with tourists. An enjoyable few hours can be spent wandering Alfama while savouring the traditional Portuguese culture that is preserved within Alfama.

a gorgeous view over the roofs of the old and famous district! I like the uniformity of the red roofs and the beautiful church in the background against the sea...
Have a nice day

A splendid view over these many and varied roofs. The rich red tones of the tiles make a great contrast with the pale blue tones of sky and river. Very good clarity.

A lovely panorama over this townscape with greatclours form the roofs of the houses contrasting nciely with both the white of the buildings and the blue of the sky. Lots of detail for your eye to linger on as it travels through the shot.

I remember standing here as well. I like the POV you've chosen here with the windows in the FG and the rooftops gradually leading us into the frame to the cupola in the BG.

Jolie vue sur les toits de Lisbonne. Dommage que l'image penche un peu vers la droite.

Hi Daniel, nice view of the red roofs of Alfama. I remember this view and it is so nice to see it again. Nice POV chosen and superb presentation.
delpeoples (52731) 2012-09-05 3:15
Hi dear Daniel
I love these rooftop scenes, they are so typically Mediterranean and add such character, texture and colour to the image. The addition of the sea and the slight haaze from the heat beautifully demonstrates this long hot summer.
Great shot, thanks for sharing

It's really a wonderful view over all these roofs of the town and the sea on BG of the picture. The vivid red colour of the tiles adds a lot of warmth and charm to the photo.
Have a nice evening,
