Pateo de Alfama is a traditional patio of the old Lisboa, situated at S John's Square, saw that the streets together with the crosses of St. Peter's Cathedral and the river runs through Alfama and goes from the Cathedral Square to the fountain inside. Graduated from the lobby of the former palace of the Counts of Murça building that survived the earthquake of 1755, is touching the wall first in town - Cerca Velha, which is one of the walls of the Yard.
To be included in a private building, this stuff is the best preserved of Cerca Velha, and have therefore been targeted by the intervention of the Archaeological Museum of the City, which I excavated to determine the nature of the foundations of the wall foundations in this view within the building. Also some pieces found in excavations in Alfama are displayed here, ranging from the IIV century BC By the sixteenth century AD. The area was operated upon in 2007, the target of deep restoration work and it installed a center where you can meet various elements of Portuguese culture: the exhibition of handicrafts, the spectacle of fado and folklore through the food traditional architecture of the Renaissance building that was the projection of the Roman Lisbon this part of town, where the eating habits and how they lived.
Single in Lisbon, the Pateo de Alfama is therefore a must-see for anyone visiting the city and want to know the customs in Portugal.
