Lisbon....city of light and silence!

Lisbon

"The Moorish quarter is one of the most traditional neighborhoods of Lisbon, which takes its name from the fact that D. Afonso Henriques, after the conquest of Lisbon, have confined an area of the city for Muslims. Was in this neighborhood that remained the Moors after the Christian reconquest. Meanwhile, the Jews were confined to quarters of Castelo.

In this and the surrounding neighborhoods, originated the first productions of Portuguese Mudejar art, that would give way for the emergence of Manueline.

The sadness and melancholy of his songs are at the origin of Fado. Born in our street, next to the Three Alley Mills, Maria Severa Onofriana, Portuguese fado singer first and ultimate expression of period1 In the fado house in front, was born in the twentieth century, who was considered the "king of the Moorish quarter fado" Fernando Maurício. In our street is now part of the iconography of Fado. Above, a Pink House Pink Platter of Lagares, Mariza grew, the more international contemporary Portuguese fado singer. By the house, now closed to the public, the restaurant was located Zalala where Mariza learned to sing fado.

After the public opening of the Mall of the Moorish quarter in Martim Moniz, the neighborhood has become a very busy place and welcoming. Currently, the Moorish quarter is considered one of the safest neighborhoods in the capital, is a meeting point for people of different cultures and, simultaneously, a site that keeps alive their ancient folk traditions, as confirmed by the existence of several fado houses , bars, taverns and local cultural and sporting a pair of commercial establishments Chinese and Indian origin, among others.

“Very pleasant stay in Springtime”

Reviewed 15 May 2015

We enjoyed our stay very much. The house is beautifully furnished and has a nice balcony with a perfect view. The house was clean. There was nothing to complain about. The agent Sandra was very helpful and reliable regarding the handover of the key and the return of the deposit. The only thing you have to consider is the neighbourhood. But this did not harm our perfect impression of the accomodation.

“Charmente maisonnette au pied du Chateau St Georges”

Reviewed 17 May 2014

Petite maison refaite à neuf dans le quartier de la Mouraria, idéalement située au pied du Château São Jorge et à 2 minutes du métro Martim Moniz et du départ du Tram 28 idéal pour visiter la ville. La maisonnette avec 2 chambres est très fonctionnelle (cuisine même s'il manque encore quelques accessoires et machine à laver); idéal pour une famille avec 2 enfants (attention 1 lit double dans chacune des chambres). Le rez de chaussée est un peu sombre. Accueil chaleureux de Sandra et caution demandée avant l'arrivée rendue sans problème 2 jours après le départ

“This is really a typical life in Lisbon!”

Reviewed 6 Nov 2013

I love Lisbon, and most of all love one of the oldest and most magical parts of it - Mouraria. I have long wanted to stay in this typical house in Mouraria, and finally found this house and Sandra. The house is very comfortable, spacious, clean and it has everything you need. Beautiful view from the terrace on the roof of Lisbon and the castle! Cafe with fado are close but quiet at night. Metro station Martim Moniz, Alfama, Elevador de Santa Justa and all the other sights are very close, you can walk the walk.I recommend this house and host, Sandra - she was very hospitable and cheerful, around helps when needed. Thanks to her, I am even more love Portugal!

“perfect place, excellent state and very well situated. Very nice owner.”

“Lisbon great changes”

Reviewed 22 Oct 2013

Great change of a place, from ruin to palace. Location next to Martim Moniz and Castle, all within walking distance. We have spent splendid time, almost three weeks in Lisbon and specially in Alfama, Baixa and Martim Moniz. We were there with our little kids (3,5 Years old and 8 month old baby) and apartment as well as city is great to visit for holidays. Accommodation is well equipped with all what is needed to stay longer. We have found new friend. For sure we will be back many times to Lisboa, and Sandras Apartments. Great apartment, great location... only so little time ;)
