Lisbon’s most elegant and trendiest neighborhood is where everyone meets for coffee, shopping, or before dinner and a night out in neighboring Bairro Alto. Most of the buildings are from the 1700s, although many were restored in the 1990s by architect Álvaro Siza Vieira, after their destruction by a devastating fire in 1988. It’s a neighborhood that flashes back to the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the “Belle Époque” when writers such as Fernando Pessoa and Eça de Queiroz used to write at the now-historic cafés. It’s also the neighborhood of theaters, of charming old bookshops and major international brands, giving it a lively cosmopolitan ambience at any time of the day. All the apartments were renovated and decorated by architects and designers, thinking about the comfort and privacy of your stay.
