The quintessential view of Lisbon's Alfama district - the number 28 tram and the cathedral (Sé de Lisboa).
This is the oldest quarter of Lisbon and is awash with historic sites. The Alfama still retains a certain degree of authenticity and a trip down any of the maze of side streets will give a glimpse into a Lisbon that has changed little over the centuries.
The cathedral is the oldest church in the Lisbon area, dating back to shortly after the city was taken back from the Moors in 1147. It has been much modified over the years but still remains austere compared to its fantastically ornate contemporaries such as the Jeronimos Monastery in Belem.
