Apartment in Bica
This apartment is home to very unique features. Set in the beautifully hilly Santa Catarina borough, it dates from the 18th century. With its “Pombalina”* wood structure, 35 sqm living room and interiors around the theme “Lisbon”, you could not find a more typical apartment. It simply breathes Lisbon: from the posters on the walls, the black and white tiles on the kitchen’s floor, the printed cushions and many other lovely details, this comfortable apartment is also wonderfully located: next door to Elevador da Bica (Bica Tram), entangled in a mesh of bright streets – or should we say streets made of steps? - where you can listen to people talking inside their homes, this apartment has been fully renovated. It now accommodates a room with a double bed, a spacious bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen, a sofa bed and air conditioning in every room. From here you can walk to sophisticated Chiado, breathtaking Adamastor belvedere, Mercado da Ribeira and also to Cais do Sodré train station, from where trains leave to run along the so-called Portuguese Riviera.
(Pombalina = from the time of the Marquess of Pombal after the 1775 earthquake)
