There are several apartments in Alfama, the neighborhood of apartment 37. it is the medieval Moorish neighborhood where an emerging cosmopolitanism mixes with the “natives” day-to-day life. It is a village in the heart of the city, due to the fact that most of Alfama’s residents have lived here their entire lives and retain a strong sense of community.
Alfama was first settled by the Romans and Visigoths and was an important Jewish neighborhood in the 15th century, but it was the Moors who gave the district its atmosphere and name (al hamma means springs, a reference to the hot springs used as baths until the 17th century). It is crowned by São Jorge castle, which was built by the Visigoths in the 5th century and enlarged by the Moors in the 9th century.
Be surprised by Alfama's narrow cobblestone alleyways, stairs and squares, built on a rock-hill that was responsible for its survival after the big 1755 earthquake that destroyed most of the medieval city. A walk through this old-fashioned residential neighborhood is now a step back in time.
It is an ideal place to explore hidden places, stunning views over the city, the river Tejo, restaurants, fado houses, or even to dance and eat sardines during the popular June festivals. Here you can find numerous little grocery shops, taverns and small restaurants - most having no more than 3 tables. At the edge of the Alfama, Lisbon's renowned flea market, the Feira da Ladra, is held in the Campo de Santa Clara every Tuesday and Saturday.
Contrasting with these timeless images is a trendy modern development by the waterfront across from Santa Apolónia train station which houses stylish design shops, restaurants and bars, like the famous "Lux".
You are also very close to the Fado and Portuguese guitar Museum: Situated at Largo do Chafariz de Dentro. It is a place where you can have a historical visit through the most the traditional Portuguese music-Fado- and famous Portuguese fado singers like Amalia Rodrigues, Carlos do Carmo and Mariza. During the summer thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays) you can dinner in a small square of the museum and listen to Fado, live! A night program you certainly won’t miss!
Another astonishing building next dor to the apartment is Casa dos Bicos (House of Facets). It was built in 1523 at the time of king Manuel I and is faced with diamond-shaped stones, probalby influenced by the Italian renaissance.
If you decide to go further up, passing Alfama you will find an astonishing view of the city from Miradouro da Graça or from the one where is the church of St. Maria do Monte da Graça. You will also be able to visit a Spanish barroque style monastery S. Vicente de Fora (mark of the Spanish domination of Portugal until 1640).
From this apartment you can explore the rest of the city walking to the castle (S. Jorge) or to Baixa, Bairro Alto, Chiado or Santa Clara.
Come and see for yourself!
Great place, great location, friendly people. We visited for the NOS Alive festival and to explore the wonderful city of Lisbon. We were not disappointed. This is a great little spot, centrally located in the old part of the city. Buzzing with restaurants and bars. The apartment is spacious and comfortable, with a great lounge to chill in and balconies looking across the rooftops and busy walkways. A great place to stay with friends or family. In fact I'm thinking about bringing my family back in the spring. Thanks guys!
Appartement et quartier tout à fait conforme à l'annonce et Travelingtolisbon a été très réactif au sujet de nos requêtes avant le départ + flexible sur les horaires d'arrivée et de départ, merci!!
Die Wohnung entspricht der Beschreibung und ist wirklich geräumig und zweckmäßig eingerichtet. Man fühlt sich sofort in Lissabon zuhause und hat in unmittelbarer Nachbarschaft Restaurants, ein Kaffee und kleine Läden. Abends ein Glas Portwein oder eine charmante Portugiesin, die mit Fadobezaubert. Bus und Metro in wenigen Minuten erreichbar. Wir waren nur mit 2 Personen in Lissabon und werden die Wohnung wieder mieten.
Perfect place to appreciate living in the 'real' lisbon (alfama) and fantastic terraces south facing .
The TTL team were very professional, helpful and polite we would recommend them .
We had a great time in apartamento 37. Very close to a wonderful restaurant for dinner, the Alfama Grill and our apartment greeter was very helpful getting us settled. Great views out the windows too and the free postcards were a nice touch.
