In the heart of Alfama, this beautiful and distinguished apartment is on the 1st floor, of an unusual but beautiful building dating from the XVIII century, with only two other apartments and an artist's studio below.

Situated in the city centre and in one of the most typical areas of Lisbon, you will find a very elegant and romantic place to stay. Original works of Portuguese contemporary artists are displayed on the walls, and some other meticulous details will make your stay unique and exquisite.

A very quiet and accommodating environment for those looking for peace and tranquility.

The best away to start the day is with breakfast on the balcony; enjoy the rooftops of Lisbon and the exquisite garden, belonging to the art studio below of the prominent contemporary artist.

The Estremadura region

Overlooking the Alfama district is the mediaeval Castelo de São Jorge, the royal residence until the early 16th century and now offering the best views of the city. On the slopes of Alfama there are other terraces (miradouros) from which to see the city such as the Miradouro de Santa Luzia, near the church of the same name and over remnants of the Moorish city walls, and the Miradouro das Portas do Sol (Gates of the Sun). Also located near Santa Luzia Miradouro is the Museu de Artes Decorativas (Museum of Decorative Arts), a 17th century mansion with magnificent interiors.

Among the churches of the Alfama district are the Lisbon Cathedral (12th-14th centuries), the oldest of the city and located to the West of the neighborhood, the Convento da Graça (an 18th century convent) near the Castle, the mannerist Monastery São Vicente de Fora (late 16th-18th century) where the Kings of the House of Braganza are buried, and the baroque Church of Santa Engrácia (17th century), now converted into a National Pantheon for important Portuguese personalities.

Lisbon

Less than 5 min, from all means of public transport (trains, subway and buses) and the Nº 28 tram, a ride not to be missed.

Twice a week, and just a minute's walk away, you can also enjoy the Feira da Ladra - Flea Market where you can buy all kinds of new and old things and discover the true spirit of one of the most typical neighborhoods in Lisbon.

One of the oldest districts in Lisbon, Alfama is spread out on the slope between the Lisbon Castle and the Tejo river. Its name comes from the Arabic Al-hamma, meaning fountains or baths. It contains many important historical attractions, with many Fado bars and restaurants.

During the times of Moorish domination, Alfama constituted the whole of the city, which later grew to the West (Baixa neighborhood). The great 1755 Lisbon Earthquake did not destroy the Alfama district, which has remained a picturesque labyrinth of narrow streets and small squares. Lately the neighborhood has been invigorated with the renovation of the old houses and restaurants, where Fado - typical Portuguese melancholy music - can be enjoyed.

"Delightful, apartment in a great location"

Spirit of Art is a terrific holiday apartment in a quirky but interesting and relatively quiet quarter. It is well restored and furnished, light and airy, with a balcony that overlooks a lovely neighboring courtyard garden. The bedrooms are lovely and very comfortable and the kitchen is very well equipped. It is very handy for Santa Apolonia Station and the Santa Clara flea market (Saturday) is just a few streets away. There are nice little restaurants in the immediate vicinity. The owner Joao was very helpful and obliging and speaks perfect English. I would definitely stay here again.
