Apartment overview - owner's description
When in love... or not, you can experience this recent restored apartment. On the second floor of a very yellow building, this is the perfect place to be in love... or not, in Lisbon.
Decorated to be a very romantic place and only with just 50m2, you can find a cosy living room facing the majestic National Pantheon, a tiny but warm bedroom, a practical kitchen and a bathroom.
Green areas surround this apartment and only a few steps to the very well knowned flea market.
Less than 5 min, from all means of public transport (trains, subway and buses) and the Nº 28 tram, a ride not to be missed.
Twice a week, and just a minute’s walk away, you can also enjoy the Feira da Ladra - Flea Market where you can buy all kinds of new and old things and discover the true spirit of one of the most typical neighborhoods in Lisbon.
One of the oldest districts in Lisbon, Alfama is spread out on the slope between the Lisbon Castle and the Tejo river. Its name comes from the Arabic Al-hamma, meaning fountains or baths. It contains many important historical attractions, with many Fado bars and restaurants.
During the times of Moorish domination, Alfama constituted the whole of the city, which later grew to the West (Baixa neighborhood). The great 1755 Lisbon Earthquake did not destroy the Alfama district, which has remained a picturesque labyrinth of narrow streets and small squares. Lately the neighborhood has been invigorated with the renovation of the old houses and restaurants, where Fado - typical Portuguese melancholy music - can be enjoyed.
Overlooking the Alfama district is the mediaeval Castelo de São Jorge, the royal residence until the early 16th century and now offering the best views of the city. On the slopes of Alfama there are other terraces (miradouros) from which to see the city such as the Miradouro de Santa Luzia, near the church of the same name and over remnants of the Moorish city walls, and the Miradouro das Portas do Sol (Gates of the Sun). Also located near Santa Luzia Miradouro is the Museu de Artes Decorativas (Museum of Decorative Arts), a 17th century mansion with magnificent interiors.
Among the churches of the Alfama district are the Lisbon Cathedral (12th-14th centuries), the oldest of the city and located to the West of the neighborhood, the Convento da Graça (an 18th century convent) near the Castle, the mannerist Monastery São Vicente de Fora (late 16th-18th century) where the Kings of the House of Braganza are buried, and the baroque Church of Santa Engrácia (17th century), now converted into a National Pantheon for important Portuguese personalities.
