In the apartment, you won't hear more than four kinds of sounds: the horns of ships passing along the Tagus; the ringing of tram bells as they cross paths in the next street (among them the legendary 28, running through the whole historic Lisbon circuit). The third sound is of the Lisboners of the air, the blackbirds, hummingbirds, seagulls and other birds that stop by the Tagus estuary. The fourth is the sound of church bells spreading through the neighbourhood, coming from the distance through their window of choice. Nevertheless you're in the very heart of the town. The apartment is located in a small square. It opens up to the facade of the church of Menino Deus (which has no bells!), the only one who survived the earthquake of Lisbon. In the square lies the oldest house in town and one of the alleys giving entrance to the castle of the city.
The house is located in the confluence of Alfama, Castelo and Graça, Lisbon's most emblematic districts. The main historical sites of Old Lisbon - besides the Castle, the old cathedral, the convent of St. Vicente, the Pantheon - are all within walking distance. The surrounding area boasts dozens of restaurants, fado houses, trendy cafes, local shops and the best terraces in town. All this within a 10 minute walk downtown.
The apartment has 70 m2 and was recently renovated. It is located on the 2nd floor of a building from the late nineteenth century. It accommodates up to 4 people. It has a bedroom with double bed. The windows overlook the rooftops of Alfama. The living room was designed to accommodate two more people, for it is furnished with a sofa bed for two people. It has a third division that serves as dining room or reading room. Fully equipped kitchen and bathroom (with shower). Towels and bed linen are included, of course.
