  2. 2. Rua dos Bacolheiros, which links Lower Baixa to the southern tier of the Alfama
  3. 3. The Church of Nossa Senhora da Conceição, (known as the Church of the Misericórdia) The facade fronting the Rua dos Bacolheiros
  4. 4. The porch is in Manueline style, with delicate stone-work, and we see there, in semi-relief, the figures of Senhora da Misericórdia (Our Lady of Mercy), King Manuel I and Dona Leonor his Queen, founders of the Misericórdia, Pope Leo X, and several saints, etc.
  5. 5. The Manueline elements concentrated on the principal facade are reconstructed from the ruins of the lateral (south) facade of the Church of the Misericórdia, destroyed during the 1755 Lisbon earthquake, and were re-used for this project. Primarily, these elements were the decorations in the internal faces of the portico (the urns, medallions, masks, cornucopias, fantastical animals, sphinxes and birds), the vegetal forms (leaves, flowers) and zoomorphic elements (birds, dragons and dogs).
  6. 6. Located on the southeastern slope of the hill crowned by Castelo de Sao Jorge is Alfama, Lisbon's oldest quarter, which sufferred only slight damage in the 1775 earthquake. Some houses in this quarter still stand on foundations dating from the times of the West Goths, but the whole structure of the area was essentially shaped by the Arabs. Although no houses remain from this era, the confused arrangement of its maze of streets and alleyways does
  7. 7. Largo das Portas do Sol The Sun Gateway was one of the seven gates into the Arab city.

Magnificent view of Lisbon and the typical Alfama district that spans several narrow, winding streets to the river Tagus. There is also a statue of Saint Vincent holding a boat with two ravens, the symbols of Lisbon. Saint Vincent of Saragossa, better known locally as Saint Vincent of Fora, is the patron saint of Lisbon.

  12. 12. São Vicente de Fora Church viewed from Miradouro
  13. 13. The terrace by the church of Santa Luzia introduces visitors to Alfama with a sweeping view over its houses, churches, and the Tagus River. On an outside wall of the church are two tile panels, one of Comercio Square before the earthquake, and another showing Christians attacking St. George's Castle in 1147.
  14. 14. Azulejos (tiles) have become a typical aspect of Portuguese culture. Alfama is a wonderful tile treasure
  15. 15. The Patriarchal Cathedral of St. Mary Major (Santa Maria Maior de Lisboa or Sé de Lisboa) or simply Lisbon Cathedral is a Roman Catholic Cathedral, the oldest church in the city, the see of the Archdiocese of Lisbon.
  16. 16. Since the beginning of the construction of the cathedral, in the year 1147, the building has been modified several times and survived many earthquakes. It is nowadays a mix of different architectural styles.
  17. 17. Earthquakes have always been a problem for Lisbon and its cathedral. During the 14th and 16th centuries there were several of them, but the worst of all was the 1755 Lisbon earthquake, which destroyed the Gothic main chapel along with the royal pantheon
