After lunch, we continued uphill, into the Alfama neighborhood to visit the a castle of São Jorge. The view wasn’t as spectacular as I had hoped due to the rain, but it’s still a great view of the Lisbon skyline.

We’re back in Lisbon! And it’s raining! After checking into our hotel we headed uphill to the Mouraria neighborhood (the “place of the Moors”) which we were introduced to on our food tour and got lunch at Tasquinho Canto do Fado, a small hole in the wall known for its Fado music.
