The Alfama's streets and alleys are very steep, and its levels are connected by flights of stone steps, which means it's easier to tour the area from the top down. Take a taxi up to the castle or approach it by Tram 28 from Rua da Conceição in the Baixa or Bus 737 from Praça da Figueira. The large terrace next to the church of Santa Luzia, just below the castle, gives a fine overview of the Alfama and the river. There are two metro stations on the southern edge of the neighborhood: Terreiro de Paço and Santa Apolónia.
