The Alfama District in Lisbon is one of the most iconic. The place has a rustic charm due to the many pretty medieval buildings that dot it. The tiny streets and the old houses are certainly a visual treat but the real charm of the place is the lifestyle of the place which still remains very similar to that which it was in the old times.
On Tuesdays and Saturdays, there is a flea market widely known as the Feira Da Ladra or Thieves' Market. The tiny buildings and the shop are built in the form of a web which used to be a defense strategy of the Portuguese. The place is a great way to get a feel of old worldly Lisbon and a must visit if you want to know more about the culture and the people.
