DOWNTOWN LISBON - BAXIA : Is the heart of the city. It is the main shopping and banking district that stretches from the riverfront to the Avenida da Liberdade, with streets named according to the shopkeepers and craftsmen who traded in the area. Most attractions can be easily reached on foot. Metro, buses, trams and taxis at the door and trains to Sintra and Cascais at short walking distances
Baixa because it oozes life, its old world charm mixing easily with today’s action. Rua Augusta is the main tourist street and here alongside the Art Nouveau store fronts, grizzled old locals read the papers hung at corner kiosks and tourists settle in at premium-rate pavement cafés watching a parade of buskers, street artists and the ubiquitous Peruvian pan pipers.
The Baixa’s central square, Rossio, provides some of the best free entertainment in the city. All of Lisbon’s masses seem to drift across Rossio’s undulating mosaic paving at some time. Stop for a coffee and watch the passing scene.
The Baixa up to the Marquês do Pombal square show you a different Lisbon, with theatres, train stations, cafés and large squares to walk around. Head towards Belém to see the majestic Mosteiro dos Jerónimos, the famous Torre de Belém and the many museums around it. Don’t forget to try out the famous Pastéis de Belém.
There is also direct access to the Lisbon airport from this area by AEROBUS (to Libon Airport)
There are hundreds of places to see in Lisbon. Some are deceptively well hidden in between the narrow streets of the city, so the best for you to do is venture out and discover them! Filled with an ancient history and a contemporary lifestyle, Lisbon perfectly combines the old and the new.
Down through Chiado and Bairro Alto, find some of the most trendy bars and restaurants in Lisbon. During the day, the streets are filled with lively crowds travelling to the modern art museums, the high street shops, the local galleries, the cafés or the local gourmet grocery store.
Downtown - Sights to Watch: The area's top three sights are undoubtedly Comercio Square, Rossio Square, and the Santa Justa Elevator. Don’t miss any of these. Don't forget to look down at the cobbled mosaic pavements as you walk down Avenida da Liberdade, past Restauradores, Rossio, and into Rua Augusta.
The nondescript facade of the 'Casa do Alentejo' restaurant in Rua das Portas de Santo Antao hides a most beautiful Moorish interior. The price of the meal (reasonably high, but the food is excellent) is justified by the surroundings. Take a walk down Rua Augusta, the city's main shopping street but you will find that most goods can be found cheaper elsewhere. Stop and look at Sao Domingos Church, to the right of the National Theatre.
Lisbon famous landmark São Jorge Castle is less than 15 min walk from the apartment.
