Apartment 47 is located at the Castle S. Jorge district as others, next door.S. Jorgeis located in the highest hill of the historic centre of the city and is one of the main historic and tourist sites of the city. Apartments 47 and 123 are in the same building.
The first fortification was built in the 2nd century BC by the Romans and grew over the time. It was renovated in the 10th century by the Moors; it was conquered by the first king of Portugal D. Afonso de Henriques and was submitted to big renovation again in 1300, when Lisbon became the capital of the Kingdom.
Between 1373 and 1375, King Ferdinand I ordered the building of a new city wall around Lisbon. This new city wall, which partially replaced the old Moorish walls, was designed to encircle previously unprotected parts of the city. It had 77 towers and a perimeter of 5400 meters, and was built in only two years. There are still some remnants left (for example against the walls of apartments 1 and 2). The castle is now a big tourist attraction, especially for the wonderful views (vista do Castelo de S. Jorge) of Lisbon that it offers.
This location has easy access to Baixa, the Castle (S Jorge) district and also to Alfama and to Santa Clara, where Lisbon's flee-market (Feira da Ladra) takes place.
It is also close to some of the stops of the famous tram number 28. This is a scenic route crossing most of the tourist neighborhoods of the city centre. A definite must for any visitor to Lisbon.
After the great earthquake of 1755, when the center of Lisbon was destroyed, a new center was constructed, made of grid pattern “geometrical” streets. This area, situated between Praça do Comércio, Rossio and Praça da Figueira is called Baixa.
From Baixa you can easily access the nigh life district Bairro Alto and the smart Chiado, with all his theatres, museums, elegant and traditional shops, bars and restaurants.
To the other direction, going up street, you will accede Graça and Santa Clara the place where Feira da Ladra (Thief's market ), the flea market, happens every Tuesdays and Saturdays. Here there are also several “musts” not to miss on your visit:
Panteão Nacional – Church of Santa Engrácia: When the construction began in 1682, it was planned as one of the Lisbon’s biggest churches. However, it had been long neglected and the construction was completed only in 1966! It was then that the Panteão Nacional was inaugurated. Here you will find cenotaphs of Portugal's heroes. The interior is colossal and contains the tombs of historic and literary figures — from Vasco da Gama to Amália Rodrigues, the famous fado singer.
The convent of São Vicente de Fora: Portugal’s first king, Afonso Henriques laid the foundations of this church in order to fulfill a vow to construct Christian Houses of worship where Portuguese and European crusaders would lay to rest. Inaugurated in 1629, the church was severely damaged by the 1755 earthquake. It has been recently renovated and deserves a visit. The view from the rooftop is one of the greatest in Lisbon.
Some "Miradouros" (vantage points) belvederes with amazing views over the castle S Jorge, the river Tejo and the city roofs. (miradors of Graça with an open-air café and Senhora do Monte 600m further on). The views are even more spectacular at sunset.
The nearest airport is Lisbon International Airport, which is 12 kilometers away.

Apartment 234 is located at Rua Poço dos Negros(Santa Catarina/ Bairro Alto).
It is at walking distance from S. Bento area (where the National Parliament - Palácio de S. Bento is held) where it is possible to find some antiques and exquisite shops as well as some restaurants.
It is also a short walking distance from Chiado and Bairro Alto. Bairro Alto is also known as design district because of all the design shops located in here. It is also easy to find fancy restaurants to dine after hours (usually most of the restaurants in this area close at 2 AM) as well as a the perfect place to have a drink overnight.
Historically this area is one of the most interesting to visit in Lisbon as Bairro Alto used to be a small village in the Middle Age and was "invaded" by the city during the 18th century. Curiously it is still possible to see and experience the way of living of a small village with its small shops in this, quietly by day, neighbourhood.
Chiado and S. Bento together with the Baixa area are the example of the Portuguese baroque architecture of the 18th century, also known as Pombalina.
This apartment is well located concerning public transports as it is in walking distance (about 10 minutes) to the subway station Baixa-Chiado as well it is served by various bus and taxi stops. The scennic route of Tram 28 is also passing next door.
Also in walking distance is possible to visit the Park Jardim da Estrela and its Basilica (a very important example of the late Baroque in Lisbon) as well as two other baroque churchs in Chiado; one of them founded by the Italian community living in Lisbon in the 18th century - Igreja de Nossa Senhora do Loreto and the other called Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Encarnação. In the same area, in about 20 minutes walking it is also possible to visit the Chiado's Museum of contemporary Art, near two major theatres (S. Carlos and S. Luis) as well as the Archeological Museum of Carmo, held at the convent with the same name.
The neighbourhood is also at walking distance from Bica where the funicular with the same name passes and Santa Catarina with its wonderful view point over the city and the river.
The nearest airport is Lisbon International Airport at 12 kilometres; the nearest railway station is International Station of Santa Apolónia at 1 kilometre.
