Mouraria is where the Moors were allowed to live after the Christian reconquest of Lisbon in 1147, before being expelled together with the Jews in 1497. Little survives from that period except for traces of the medieval wall, but this curiously remains the most multiethnic neighborhood in the city. The majority of the foreign population is from Bangladesh, followed by immigrants from China, India, Pakistan, and Mozambique. It's nonetheless a very authentically Lisbon neighborhood, known as the birthplace of Fado. It was here that the first great Fado singer lived in the 1800s, the legendary Severa who fell in love with a count and took the music of the people to the aristocracy. Other big names related to Fado have lived in the neighborhood, such as World Music star Mariza, who grew up on these streets before reaching the big stages of the world. It had become a very rundown neighborhood, but major renovations starting in 2009 have put it back on the map. It now attracts for its mini-"Chinatown," for the stalls on Martim Moniz Square serving foods from all over the world, and for the cleaned-up Intendente Square which hides one of the most beautiful tiled façades in the city. Another hidden treasure is the interior of the former Colégio dos Meninos Orfãos orphanage on Rua da Mouraria, now divided into several public services, but with a staircase covered with tile panels from the 1700s depicting passages from the Old and New Testaments. Also worth a look is the curious medieval house (one of the oldest in Lisbon) on Largo da Achada behind the Church of St. Christopher, with gothic doors and windows. Next door is another up-and-coming neighborhood, Anjos, following Avenida Almirante Reis with its several notable Art Nouveau buildings. Up the hill you reach one of the least known lookout terraces, the Miradouro do Monte Agudo.

It’s a very cozy apartment in a traditional neighborhood with easy access to and from downtown and 5 mins to Martin Moniz metro. You must climb steep stairs in the building so be careful and it can be a little noisy but the walls and windows cancel out enough sound. Lots of natur…

Great place, with such a cute view of the Castelo de Sao Jorge from the kitchen window. Walkable to the castle and Martim Moniz area.

The apartment is very cozy and very centrally located. Only five minutes from the metro station. The view of the Castelo São Jorge is amazing. The apartment is equipped with everything you need. From washing machine to heating fan. A great choice for a stay in Lisbon.
