Location and SurroundingsThis property is located in the heart of the Alfama Old Town district of Lisbon. This is a traditional area, once home to the poor fishermen of Portugal's capital and the only part of the city to have survived the 18th century earthquake.
Families have lived for generations in this area, which still retains a village-like atmosphere and most of its quaint 18th century architecture; terracotta rooftops, little cobbled streets, and flower-filled balconies.
The name of the apartment, "Sé de Lisboa", comes from the city's Cathedral, a short 10 minute walk away. The Castelo de São Jorge fortress, with fantastic city views, is even closer, as is the São Vicente de Fora monastery of the famous Feira da Ladra fleamarket, held every Tuesday and Saturday Campo Santa Clara.
Transport is provided by the well-known Number 28 Tram or cable car, which takes you through the narrow cobbled streets and into downtown Lisbon. Although, if you enjoy getting a feel for the city and taking in the sights, you can walk into the centre of town in around 20 minutes.
Additional informationNo pets allowed. Smoking allowed only by the balcony.
150 euros in cash is required on arrival as a security deposit, to be returned at the end of your stay if no damage is caused.
There is an additional late check-in fee of 30€ for arrivales after 10pm

The location was very good with a village feel but in the heart of the city. The apartment is light and has great views over the roof tops. It was a surprise to wake up hearing only the sound of birds in the morning.

Very convenient location for the places of interest to us with good value for money local restaurants. The host, Patricia, was very friendly and helpful. The cosy apartment had all we needed for our brief but enjoyable stay in Lisbon. Good Fado Saturday evening in the next door restaurant.
