The Costa de Lisboa/Lisbon region
Lisbon's steeply sloping terrain has always been a serious problem for the transport of people and goods between the high and the low-lying areas. During the 19th century, in some areas, the company of transports in Lisbon used trams on rails pulled by animals. On the 28th June 1890 a new system was opened to the public at de street of Duarte Belo, copying the one already in use at Calçada do Lavra and Calçada da Glória. The initial traction system was by rack and cable, with water as the counter-weight and it started using electricity around 1912. The actual carriages where not changed since the thirties.
The apartment is located next door to the marvellous garden Príncipe Real. There are several other apartments at Principe Real and Bairro Alto.
There are several public car parks within walking distance.
Bairro Alto dates back to the 16th century and is characterized by its small workshops and restaurants. By day, it is a quiet sleepy area (recently pedestrianised); by night the area becomes alive and is a popular place to dine and drink away the early hours.
Príncipe Real is an elegant 18C and 19C neighborhood with a pleasant centenarian park having a quiet open air café and the water museum – Museu da água). In the neighborhood, there are several very good restaurants and bars, all kind of commerce, including antique shops, the park of Principe Real and the oldest Botanical Garden of Lisbon (Jardim Botânico) of the University Clássica of Lisbon. You can also go to all the restaurants and bars of Bairro Alto where the sentimental 'fados' are still sung in some restaurants and cafés.
The apartment is a short walking distance from the other picturesque neighbourhoods of Baixa, Chiado, and Alfama, where you can find the historic Castle (S. Jorge). It is also walking distance to the subway (the closest is Baixa-Chiado) and train stations (Cais do Sodré) that can take you to the beautiful beaches around Cascais.
A 5 minute walk takes you to Rossio, in Baixa, and to the Elevador da Gloria (Time Table), arriving in Avenida da Liberdade. In the other direction, by the river Tagus (Rio Tejo), you can find Praça do Comércio, centre of the old Portuguese empire. It is close to shops, restaurants, cafés, banks, cash machines, public transport (inc subway Baixa/Chiado station and electric trams) 24 hour taxi stands, etc.
The nearest airport is Lisbon International Airport at 12 kilometres ; the nearest railway station is International Station of Santa Apolónia at 1 kilometre.
