Alfama is one of the typical neighborhood in Lisbon. There are many narrow alleyways together with small shops, cafes and view points inside while visitors have to meanders their way uphill and downhill. Quite interesting to spend a couple of hours here.

I know who to ask. There is a wonderful ceramic artist with a shop on R. Guilherme Braga, 42A. Her name is Deolinda Rocha. She has the most wonderful little gift shop in Alfama...and I was a very happy customer recently.
