A very Charming apartment in Alfama. Conveniently located, near Museu do Fado, to visit Lisboa with very easy access to down town and public transports.
A wonderful 2 bedroom apartment decorated to a very high standard, conveniently located on the 1st floor, and in the lower part of Alfama. No narrow steep streets to walk home at the end of the day!
Alfama is the oldest district of Lisbon, spreading on the slope between the São Jorge Castle and the Tejo river. Its name comes from the Arabic Al-hamma, meaning fountains or baths. It includes the freguesias (parishes) of São Miguel, Santo Estêvão, São Vicente de Fora and part of two streets of Freguesia da Sé: Rua do Barão and Rua São João da Praça. It contains many important historical attractions, with many Fado bars and restaurants. The great 1755 Lisbon Earthquake did not destroy the Alfama, which has remained a picturesque labyrinth of narrow streets and small squares. Lately the neighbourhood has been invigorated with the renovation of the old houses and new restaurants where Fado—Portuguese typical melancholy music—can be enjoyed.
Being in the heart of Lisbon, public transportation is very easy to get. The popular bus 28 that runs Lisbon from north to south (including Belem) is at your doorstep. There are two subway stations nearby, Terreiro do Paço (8 min walking) and Sta. Apolónia (9 min walking).
