Hotel Santiago de Alfama is located on Rua de Santiago in the wonderfully nostalgic district of Alfama, immediatley below Saint Georges Castle and above the famous view point, Miradouro de Santa Luzia. Alfama is Lisbon's fado district, this music is part of the fabric of this neighbourhood, if you listen carfully you will hear the strum of a mandoline coming from an open window, a fado singer coming down a cobbeled street.
its pretty narrow streets date back a milenia, some so old that the buildings lean to meet each other, secrets wisper from their ancient walls.
