The tramlines make excellent pointers toward the monastery church in this well composed image. The subdued lighting and muted colours bring a particular atmosphere to the composition. A pleasant area to wander round whatever the weather.

Wonderful perspective and colours. I liked the overhead lines leading to the buildings and the twin towers in the distance. Congratulations!

I remember perfectly this beautiful street in Alfama, and your photo is very pleasant for me.
A dynamic perspective of the rails of the charming and famous "electrico", which leads our eyes towards the wonderful architecture of the Monastery of Saõ Vicente de Fora.
I like the graphical wealth of your composition.
