    Chafariz de Dentro Square on Lisbon audio tour The Soul of Alfama

    Now, turn right onto the square, aiming towards the far right corner.

    This is Chafariz de Dentro Square, the main square of Alfama. Chafariz de Dentro means the “fountain indoors”, because it was located inside the city old walls.

    Lisbon’s historian and writer Norberto de Araújo called this 13th century square the “Rossio” or “Terreiro do Paço”, meaning it’s Alfama’s core and important location.

    Head to the fountain by the stonewall to your right. I'll meet you there.
