Unfortunately none of my photos loaded on my last post from Madrid! I fixed the problem click here to view.
We are staying in a neighborhood called Alfama in the city of Lisbon. It is one of the oldest quarters as it was not destroyed by the earthquake that hit Lisbon in the late 1700’s. Other areas had to be completely rebuilt. As a result Alfama has retained it’s winding streets and charm. We are staying in a 2 story apartment. Our neighbors are an old couple below us that have twice invited us in for lunch and give us toothless smiles and waves everyday as we leave.
The first day we spent walking the streets and enjoying the lovely sea views. We also took a trip downtown to check out a couple of plazas and pick up some wine and port.
