Car: Not Necessary
The apartment is located in an area called Baixa - the historic center of the city. It sits in a valley/plateau that lies between two hills. To the East of the apartment lies St George's Castle (the elevator is 200 meters away) and the historic but very hilly Alfama district (the oldest remaining part of Lisbon and the Moorish center with some great architectural examples). To the West of Baixa lies Chaido and Barrio Alto. Chaido has many international designer shops and Barrio Alto is the area where you will find over 100 bars & restaurants that pretty much runs all night long with a crowded and loud street life but fun to visit in the evening.
In Baixa you have the historic center that is being or has been renovated with many new boutique hotels, lots of outdoor restaurants and the new Design Museum (MUDE). There are also many shops (though not the exclusive designer stores that exist in Chiado). Each of these areas are very small in scale with their own unique character which makes walking around quite easy - though hilly in spots. You can walk from the East end (St George’s Tower) to the West Side (Barrio Alto) in 20-30 mins.
Santa Justa Elevator:
One of the city's best-loved landmarks and also known as the 'Elevator of Carmo,' this extraordinary structure was built at the turn of the century by the Portugal-born French architect Raoul de Mesnier du Ponsard (an apprentice of Gustave Eiffel, explaining the structure's similarities to Paris' Eiffel Tower), to connect downtown to Bairro Alto (the lowest and highest points of the city).
Year Purchased: 2014
About: We are Americans working and living in London. My wife is an academic and I work for a global software company. We love Lisbon for its long and rich history, great architecture, good food, wonderful climate, affordability and the friendly people. It is truly a great place to explore, enjoy and relax.
Why Baixa (Bairro Alto, Lisboa, Portugal):
This is a very unique 200+year old apartment with nearly 1 meter thick stone walls that lies within an area called Baixa - the historic center of the city. We have furnished this to a very high standard for our own use and for our guests to enjoy. Located on the 1st floor with only a few steps via a grand entrance way.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
An Architectural Gem in central historic Lisbon within easy walking distance to most of the major sites within historic Lisbon.
