This is a newly renovated studio and decorated with the theme "Saudade" through Fado,
"Saudade" is a Portuguese word to the define missing something or someone, or even nostalgia. The word and the feeling is so strong that Portuguese people considerate impossible to translate it in another language, just "missing" gets really short for what "saudade" really feels like. Fernando Pessoa gave it the following meaning: "Saudade is the poetry of Fado ..."

After the great earthquake of 1755, when the center of Lisbon was destroyed, a new center was constructed, made of grid pattern "geometrical" streets. This area, situated between Praça do Comércio, Rossio and Praça da Figueira is called Baixa. Martim Moniz is next to this quarter. Martim Moniz, and its surrounding area, has been having a face lift for some years now. You will find that its square is a place for concerts, bars, exhibitions, a place of get togethers.
From Baixa you can easily access The nigh life district Bairro Alto and the smart Chiado, with all his theatres, museums, elegant and traditional shops, bars and restaurants.
Or if you choose to go up hill, you will accede Graça and Santa Clara the place where Feira da Ladra (Thief's market ), a flea market that happens every Tuesdays and Saturdays. And the Castle of course.
There are several other "musts" around this area not to be missed on your visit:
- Panteão Nacional - Church of Santa Engrácia: When the construction began in 1682, it was planned as one of the Lisbon's biggest churches. However, it had been long neglected and the construction was completed only in 1966! It was then that the Panteão Nacional was inaugurated. Here you will find cenotaphs of Portugal's heroes. The interior is colossal and contains the tombs of historic and literary figures - from Vasco da Gama to Amália Rodrigues, the famous fado singer.
- The convent of São Vicente de Fora: Portugal's first king, Afonso Henriques laid the foundations of this church in order to fulfil a vow to construct Christian Houses of worship where Portuguese and European crusaders would lay to rest. Inaugurated in 1629, the church was severely damaged by the 1755 earthquake. It has been recently renovated and deserves a visit. The view from the rooftop is one of the greatest in Lisbon.
- Some "Miradouros" (vantage points) with amazing views over the castle S. Jorge, the river Tejo and the city roofs: miradouro da Graça with an open-air café and Senhora do Monte 600m further on. The views are even more spectacular at sunset. Don't miss it!
The nearest airport is Lisbon International Airport, which is 5 kilometres away.
Abbiamo soggiornato 3 notti in questo delizioso monolocale. L'appartamento è nuovissimo, pulito e arredato con gusto, si trova proprio al centro di Lisbona e tutti i luoghi di maggiore interesse sono raggiungibili a piedi. Il ragazzo che è venuto a fare il check in è stato molto gentile e ci ha consigliato cosa visitare, ci ha anche dato una mappa della città. Assolutamente raccomandato per un week end romantico.
