A few words on Lisbon, and the area surrounding the Almada Baixa apartment:
A settlement since c. 1200 BC, mythically founded by Ulysses, Lisbon is one of the oldest cities in the world. Rich in architecture, a sample of this diversity can be found in the area surrounding the Almada Baixa apartment. Within walking distance are Lisbon's Opera House, the Carmo Convent, the Chiado Museum, a number of churches, including the oldest church in Lisbon.
The Pombaline Baixa is an elegant district, the commercial centre of the city. It was primarily constructed after the 1755 Lisbon earthquake, taking its name from its benefactor, the 1st Marquis of Pombal, a key figure during the Portuguese Enlightenment. The Pombaline architectural structures are one of the first examples of earthquake-resistant construction and the Pombaline Baixa was placed on Portugal's list of potential World Heritage Sites.
Perfect for shopping, the Augusta Street leads your steps to another Portuguese monument, the Rua Augusta Arch, with its colossal statues surveying the Commerce Square and the river Tejo. On a clear day, you can enjoy the view all the way to the South bank of the river, or even take a ferry and a bus to the Costa da Caparica beaches.
Also nearby is the Luís de Camões square, where you can: enjoy an espresso in the most famous of Chiado's cafés, the Brasileira; go next door to sample a chocolate croissant from the no less famous Benard pastry and coffee shop; try out a 'ginginha de Óbidos' or one of the many traditional Portuguese products available from the refreshments kiosk before heading upwards to the Bairro Alto district. Once there, you can take your pick: a meal in one of the many quality restaurants, drinks in the bars and clubs peppered around the cobbled streets, or a more traditional Portuguese night of dinner and fado in one of the several Fado houses.
There is a little something for every taste, and everything is within walking distance of the Almada Baixa apartment.
