Alfama - a very
Largo do Chafariz de Dentro12
Why locals love it
This square is located in the oldest and one of the most typical neighborhoods in Lisbon. Typical houses, old cafes and grocery shops. If you hear someone screaming at the window, don’t worry, there is no fire, probably just someone calling a neighbor! This is the day to day life of the Alfama locals.
Why you should visit it
If you are interested in learning more about Fado, visit Fado Museum or if you want to go inside the Alfama labyrinth, just choose one of the streets and you will find old taverns, where people after drinking some cups of aguardente (Portuguese brandy) can sing a Fado song (probably out of tune).
There is Fado Vadio, since it is sung by non professionals and Desgarrada, a defiance between two singers, improvising verses that tell a fun story.
