An apartment in Alfama, Lisbon, the oldest part of the Portuguese capital.

When the Moors ruled Iberia, Alfama was the centre of Lisbon. Over the centuries the city expanded and the wealthy inhabitants left the old city centre. The fishermen and the poorer families stayed by the sea. When in 1775 almost the whole city was destroyed by a huge earthquake, the buildings of the old town and thus also many of the buildings that are now among the most interesting sights of Lisbon, were miraculously spared. Today, the labyrinth of small streets is a magnet for visitors and apartments in Alfama/Lisbon are very popular with tourists. In the middle of the 1970s, when the Portuguese dictatorship was overthrown by the carnation revolution, people in Lisbon remembered the valuable heritage and started to renovate the houses of Alfama. Alfama is very interesting for tourists. Right in front of the door of your apartment in Alfama/Lisbon there is always something to see and experience. As the day draws to a close, locals and tourists meet in the cosy fado pubs. Here, in the poor part of Lisbon, the songs that mostly sing about a difficult fate, an unhappy love or the longing for a better future have their origin. Fado is closely linked to the tradition of ordinary people and has therefore been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO

Holiday homes in Baixa Pombalina, Lisbon, are located in the younger part of the Portuguese capital, which was destroyed by the earthquake in the 18th century and rebuilt afterwards. Tourists who are enthusiastic about architecture often choose this part of the city when looking for a private holiday home in Lisbon because its street architecture is unique.

    Very central, close to all the major attractions. There is a bit of a damp (but not a big issue) also a kettle would be a nice addition :)
