Lisbon Alfama View, the city’s oldest quarter, the Alfama, seen from above.
Narrow lanes wind to the Tagus River where it meets the Atlantic Ocean. An ancient cityscape great for wall decor and a thoughtful gift for friends, relatives and housewarming.

With its deeply Moorish heritage and old history as a fishing village, the Alfama is a survivor, the only section of Lisbon to survive a hellish earthquake in the late 18th Century. It’s like walking in history with the present breaking through in intermittent spaces. You can really get a feel for what it was like, once upon a time, to have your life center on climbing up and down this hill to and from the sea.
