Area very safe both day and night.story of the apartment we lived in this apartment for some happy years before the family grew up. During all that time we really felt privileged and lucky to be able to live in such a place. This is a unique location in lisbon for its beauty, as well as its historic and cultural background. We really miss the sun coming in each morning from behind the castle, strolling up r. Garret or down to rossio, walking at night to the opera or some restaurant in bairro alto as well as staying at home enjoying the view, the blue sky and the fresh and airy feel of the white stone floor and high ceilings. Since we started sharing this place, we have noticed people find different attractions to the apartment, although all adore the location, view, sense of space and light as well as to hang out the windows and enjoy the “living theatre” of rua do carmo. To be honest, one main reason why we rent this apartment for short stays is because we like to go back there sometimes.
the building of the apartment was reconstructed in 1996 under the supervision of famous architect alvaro siza respecting the original 18th century architecture and is located in rua do carmo at the very heart of chiado. This is a prestigious and lively pedestrian street hosting some of the most important lisbon sites, like the famous s. Justa iron lift - a 3 star michelin attraction just 50 mt from the apartment. Chiado is certainly the most beautiful area of historical lisbon, unique for its background and always a privileged meeting point for 'lisboetas' and visitors with its old cafés and shops coexisting with top fashion boutiques and art galleries. It is one of the most fashionable (and expensive) places to live in lisbon. Chiado has been a place of beautiful churches and palaces since the 13th century. After the 1755 earthquake it became the centre of cultural and commercial life in lisbon.
