Property description

In the center of town, close to the Parliament, a short walking distance to Chiado and Bairro Alto, with their nightlife, shops, museums and theatres, and on the route of tram 28, the most scenic tram in Lisbon...

The building underwent full renovation in 2004 and the project was awarded the second prize in an yearly competition that appraises the reconstruction of old town buildings throughout Portugal. Its major source of beauty are the glazed tiles (azulejos), dating from the 18th and 19th centuries, which are different from floor to floor, thus rendering each apartment unique.

'Azulejos award-winning apartment' registry 12630/AL.

Car: Not Necessary

Five to ten minutes walking distance you'll find bohemian Bairro Alto, with its nightlife and alternative shops. A couple of steps further you're in Chiado, a more sophisticated district, with old-style cafes, theaters, and renowned shops.

Head in that same direction strolling along the narrow streets closer to the river and you can enjoy nice views of Lisbon and the river from Miradouro (Belvedere) Santa Catarina.

Walking a few minutes the opposite direction as you leave the apartment, you find S. Bento street with its antique shops and the national parliament. Santos, labeled the 'design district' for its cluster of shops dedicated to design, is 2,000 feet (600m) away.

Principe Real, with the botanic garden, several gay bars and clubs, interior design shops, and more antique shops, is located 2,000 feet (600m) from the apartment.

To go to Alfama and the castle or the flea market on a Saturday or Tuesday morning, catch tram 28 (for 1 mile, 1.6 km) (the stop heading in that direction is located on the street behind the building).

At the nearby Santos station you can take the train to visit Estoril and Cascais or enjoy their beach (30 minute train ride).

The Marina Doca Alcantara is 1.7 miles (2.7 km) away, with a direct 2 minute train connection to Santos station (which is less than 10 minutes walking from the apartment).

Lisbon synagogue is 1 mile (1.6 km) away.

Cafés, pastry shops, small groceries, restaurants, and old-fashioned shops go without mentioning, as there are so many of them all around...

Year Purchased: 2006

Why the Owner Chose Lisbon:
I saw the glazed tiles and the wooden floors and that was it -- decision taken! Also, I had attended school very close by, so everything felt like home.
