street pictures in Alfama, Lisboa

street picturesWandering around Lisbon last fall with some friends we crossed Alfama: the old district that seems abundant in history and hidden treasures. But also a place where the poor, the artistic and the locals live. And suddenly we stumbled upon a little street that was illustrated in a beautiful way. Old photographs of streetlife in Alfama where cast in stone images and put in the walls as jewels in a crown. Simple, but very impressive in its beauty.
