BAIRRO ALTO + CHIADO
Lisbon's cultural and bohemian heart; nightlife and shopping mecca
BAIRRO ALTO is a picturesque working class quarter dating from the 16th century that has traditionally been the city's bohemian haunt of artists and writers.
Its grid of streets is quiet during the day, but is transformed at night into the city's vibrant nightlife quarter. Behind colorful and graffiti-ridden façades is a variety of traditional and international restaurants, tourist-packed Fado Houses, and a multitude of bars and alternative shops that stay open until late at night. Throughout the week, and especially on weekends you'll find people of all ages, backgrounds, and lifestyles bar-hopping through the cobbled lanes or standing outside with a drink in hand enjoying the city's usual mild nights.
The main commercial streets are Rua do Norte, Rua da Atalaia, and Rua do Diario de Noticias, from where it is easy to reach Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara (a garden-terrace with a panoramic view over the city), and two of the city's most interesting churches: São Roque with its magnificent baroque interior and the romantic Gothic ruins of Carmo Church.
Chiado shops Neighboring CHIADO is an elegant, sophisticated district of theaters, bookshops, old-style cafes, art nouveau jewelry shops, luxurious international names such as Hermes, and local treasures such as the opulently gilded Tavares Rico Restaurant opened in 1784, the fine porcelain shop Vista Alegre, or one of Portugal's international fashion designers, Ana Salazar.
Much of the area was destroyed in a fire in 1988, but has since been reborn. It remains one of Lisbon's most beloved districts, with reminders of its past as the center of the city's intellectual life, with statues of literary figures such as Fernando Pessoa, Luis de Camões, and Eça de Queiroz.
Up the hill is PRINCIPE REAL, an area known for its antique and interior design shops on Rua Dom Pedro V and Rua da Escola Politecnica, and also for being the city's gay quarter with a number of gay bars and clubs. In the streets from the Principe Real Garden down to the riverfront, especially in Rua de São Marçal, are attractive 19th century townhouses and some of the most tranquil spots in the city, such as the leafy Praça das Flores.
To the west is the district of Estrela, dominated by a huge domed basilica. It is not too far from the country's parliament, the neoclassical São Bento Palace, and connects to the west to opulent Lapa, the diplomatic quarter with grand embassy buildings and old mansions. It is also the site of the Ancient Art Museum, one of the city's top attractions.
Very good place :)

Reviews of this property
Location, services, cleaness are great! The pictures shows the reality. Very cozy neat and tidy house.
Just one window in the door so not appropiated for clastrophobic and people taller than 1.80.
We never met Ana because she sent a message upon our arival to Lisbon telling us that the keys were in her mother apartment (close to her apartment but it was shocking) Her mother is a very nice and friendly person.
Thank you very much, a lovely little place - but only for Hobbits. Just few meters and you can enjoy beautiful vue over Tejo, sunset, and have a drink. I will be back.
I was visiting Ana's apartment with my husband and my son. I can highly recommend this apartment. Location is perfect, apartment is clean and has everything that you might need. Ana provided us even a baby cot. I hope we will come to Lisbon again and the apartment will be free in that moment.
This is the second time that I've stayed in this apartment. The first was two years ago. Since then, the bathroom has been remodeled and new furniture added. The improvements have made it even more modern and comfortable, and I highly recommend it, not only for the apartment itself, but also for its central location. The owner, Henrique, was easy to work with; and the manager's husband, Ricardo, who met us on arrival, was friendly, helpful and accommodating. I rated the apartment a 10 two years ago; and if there was a rating of 11, I'd do that now. Like I said, I highly recommend it.
Even though we had to shorten our trip, we had a really great time. The apartment is cosy and has a perfect geographic situation.
Thanks again, Ana, for your kindness and great advices.
We won't hesitate to come back next time we visit Lisbon.
Absolutely perfect, flexibel and uncomplicated. A clean, sweet, clean and lovely appartement near the center and central station. We will come back!
Thanks to Anna!
The apartment very well located. Ana is very kind hostess. We enjoyed our stay in Lisbona.
Ana, very good hostess.
Apartment very central and convenient.
Ana, muy buena anfitriona.
Piso muy céntrico y bien situado.
The place is well located and Anna is helpful. However, it is pretty small and there is hardly any daylight in it. So it is good for those who plan to only sleep in it. ;)
