What makes this apartment unique

The district of Mouraria is one of the most traditional districts of Lisbon. It was in this area that the Moors lived after the conquest of Lisbon by D. Afonso Henriques in 1147 until they were expelled in the 15th century. From that time there are few vestiges, nevertheless the Mouraria is still today the most multicultural district of the city. In all, 56 nationalities coexist in this neighborhood, most of them in Bangladesh, China, India, Pakistan and Mozambique.

Despite its multiculturality, and offering many international products and stores, Mouraria continues to be a typically Lisbon neighborhood. This cozy neighborhood is located between Martim Moniz and São Jorge Castle. Once a more troubled and dilapidated neighborhood, Mouraria has undergone renovation work in 2009, making it one of the most interesting tourist and cultural sites in Lisbon.

This neighborhood is also known as the birthplace of Fado. Severa lived there, the first fado singer known in Portugal in the 19th century. It is said that Severa fell in love with an earl and that was when the fado came to the aristocratic halls. In the twentieth century, Fernando Maurício lived in this clay, being considered the "king of fado da Mouraria". Rua do Capelão is part of the iconography of fado. It was also in Mouraria that Mariza grew, the most international Portuguese fadista of the present time.

This neighborhood attracts tourists for its multiculturalism and simultaneously for its traditional character. There are restaurants and shops of various countries, as well as several fado houses and typical taverns. It is worth going through Largo do Intendente, which has one of the most beautiful tile facades in the city, and the Orphans Boys' College in Rua da Mouraria, with its tiled staircase.

If you visit Mouraria, do not forget to stop by the medieval house of Largo da Achada. This is located behind the Church of São Cristóvão and is one of the oldest houses in Lisbon, with ogival doors and windows.

Olarias House-Cozy

  • 4 of 5

The house itself was very clean and cozy and just as the pictures show. We were very comfortable for our 10 day stay in Lisbon. Gustavo was great with suggestions for food/roof top bars etc. Some missed communication with arrival and departure. Outside the apartment was all under construction. There was no nice area to sit outside and relax as shown in the photos as scaffolding and construction mess was everywhere. I am sure it will be nice again once this construction passes. This whole area of town is under construction Monday through Friday adding a lot of noise and filth. There are other areas of Lisbon undergoing renovations as well... and had we known we would have waited to visit this city once the main construction was done as it was a bit of a nuisance. I would however recommend this flat once the construction was completed!

La casa era carina ma mancava di un riscaldamento adeguato che mi ha procurato una bella bronchite. inoltre al nostro arrivo sono iniziati i lavori nel giardino. Nessuno mi aveva avvertito !Non si poteva uscire se non passando nel fango . E inoltre sapendo della nostra presenza non hanno lasciato neanche un minimo passaggio senza doversi infangare tutti.

Un’altra cosa le foto ricevute rima di arrivare non hanno mai fatto capire quanti gradini bisognava salire o fare discese ripide...

Forse andava detto.

Mi spiace ma non siamo stati contenti !

Vi salutiamo.

Big disappointment!

  • 1 of 5

The apartment was a big disappointment. Yes, the pictures on the site are correct, but when we arrived we were shocked; it looked like a slum! A piece of bare ground, full of litter.

The "terrace" is a part of the street before the front door. Next to it, a building is being renovated. So, loud noises and dust make this "terrace" unusable and the living inside the apartment impossible from 8:00 till 19:00.

Never book this apartment!

Juste parfait 👌

  • 5 of 5

Dans un quartier typique, un petit havre de paix pour se relaxer après de bonnes journées de visites ! Propre et confortable, un deux pièces vraiment charmant, à deux pas de deux beaux points de vues sur la ville, du métro et du château Sao Jorge.

Les propriétaires sont disponibles, aimables et accueillants, et les recommandations de Rita sont incontournables !

Endroit où séjourner sans hésitations !

Eccellente sistemazione

  • 5 of 5

Ho soggiornato 4 notti nell'alloggio di Gustavo. Vicinissimo

a tutto: Metro, Ristoranti, Centro Movida. Ottima connessione WIFI.

La cosa più importante però è la massima cura della pulizia riscontrata nell'alloggio di Gustavo.

Complimenti veramente!

Mouraria is where the Moors were allowed to live after the conquest 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. Mouraria life has always been marked by the sound of the guitars, the sound of taverns, brothels music, glasses of wine between friends and Fado. And it’s still there. But this identity joined many others identities and today, rising from the Mall of Mouraria, there is Cape Verdean music, indian flavors, Brazilian rhythms, Pakistani flavors, Mozambican dishes and Asian mills.

It had become a very rundown neighborhood until major renovations starting in 2009 put it back on the map. It now attracts for its mini-'Chinatown,' for the kiosks 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 forms “Colégio dos Meninos Órfãos” 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.
