Nº Alojamento Local: 5801/AL

Located inside S. Jorge Castle in Lisbon, this house is ideal for anyone looking forward to get to know Portuguese Culture and heritage, as well as exploring the old city with a stunning view every morning.

The castle is a joy to behold. And with the traditional local pastry Pasteis de Nata 10 ft away from the door, it's hard to think of a better way to find out what our culture is all about.
The Castelo de S. Jorge ,National Monument occupies a privileged area of the old citadel and consists of the castle, ruins of the former royal palace and part of the neighborhood for the elite.

The fortification, built by the Moors (Mouros) in the mid-11th century, was the last defensive stronghold for the elite who resided on the citadel: the Moorish governor whose palace was nearby, and the elite city administrators whose homes are visible today in the Archaeological Site.

Today it's no longer a stronghold, it's just one of the few places you get to see all of the Lisbon hills, and travel in time back to a distant past, full of history and tradition. Even though the house is inside the Castle walls, access is very easy, and there's plenty os grocery stores and cafes around for your convenience and comfort.

The Tram 12 and the Bus 737 takes you to Praça da Figueira (near Rossio, in the downtown), while the famous Tram 28 is nearby and makes the ideal tour in ancient Lisbon, as well as a conveniente way of getting around downtown.

The apartment has been recently renovated and has got anything you might need. Free Wi-Fi, cable TV, two separate double beds (one in the living room as a sofa-bed), and a separate room upstairs.
