    Apartment in Lisbon 242 - Bica/Bairro Alto - managed by travelingtolisbon

    Lisbon

    Description

    Apartment 242 is located on the 4rd floor (no elevator!) of an old historic building in the funicular/tram of Bica at the border of Bairro Alto district.
    The apartment is a short walking distance from the other picturesque neighbourhoods of Baixa, Chiado and Alfama, where you can find the historic Castle (S. Jorge).
    Nearby you have all kinds of traditional commerce and access to the train to the beaches around Cascais.
    The apartment is 60m2 and has been renovated to include the following:
    * one bedroom with double bed (160*200)
    * a living room with dining area with a small veranda overlooking the funicular and the river;
    * a kitchenette with electric stove, microwave and fridge with freezer;
    * a bathroom with shower.
    Wireless broadband access available for those who have their own laptop with Wi-Fi compatible equipment.
    The apartment is provided with air conditioning.
    We will welcome you with a bottle of wine.
    Apartment 242 is located in one of the oldest neighbourhoods of Lisbon, where you will most certainly experience the traditional Portuguese way of life. There are several other apartments at Bairro Alto and Bica.
    It is at the border of Bairro Alto inside the way were the funicular Bica passes.
    Lisbon's steeply sloping terrain has always been a serious problem for the transport of people and goods between the high and the low-lying areas. During the 19th century, in some areas, the company of transports in Lisbon used trams on rails pulled by animals. On the 28th June 1890 a new system was opened to the public at de street of Duarte Belo, copying the one already in use at Calçada do Lavra and Calçada da Glória. The initial traction system was by rack and cable, with water as the counter-weight and it started using electricity around 1912. The actual carriages where not changed since the thirties.
    All the three funiculars in Lisbon, Calçada do Lavra, Glória and Bica were declared to be national monuments in February 2002.
    Bairro Alto dates back to the 16th century and is characterised by its small workshops and restaurants. By day, it is a quiet sleepy area (recently pedestrianized); by night the area comes alive and is a popular place to dine and drink away the early hours. In Bica you can find the Bica funicular that connects Bairro Alto with Cais do Sodré (where you can catch the train that can take you to the beautiful beaches around Cascais).
    It is close to shops, restaurants, cafés, banks, cash machines, public transport ( inccluding subway station Baixa/Chiado and electric trams) and 24 hour taxi stands, etc.
    A wonderful experience of living right in the heart of the city!
    The nearest airport is Lisbon International Airport at 12 kilometres; the nearest railway station is International Station of Santa Apolónia at 1 kilometre.
    Came and see for yourself!
