You won't be able to escape getting lost in the narrow streets of Alfama.
Step into the maze of its medieval alleys, peeking into tiny shops, admiring tile panels, flowerpots and drying laundry on wrought-iron balconies; go up and down precipitous staircases, let yourself be guided by the sound of caged canaries or the smells of fish on grills, and eventually you reach a tiny square with a whitewashed church, an inviting restaurant, a terrace with views of the river.
Before you know it, you're back in familiar territory with the sensation that getting lost has never been so captivating.
