Ziggy are the apartments you are staying at called just Palmeiras or Palmeiras de St Eulalia? If its the latter you are approx 25 mins walk to Old town.

If you walk down to the main street Estrada de Santa Eulalia and turn left, there is a bus from the stop opposite the tourist office (close to the Little Britain restaurant bar) every half hour every day (Sundays and Holidays included) from 0732 to 2132 in winter, 2332 in summer. This is GIRO LINHA VERDE (green) and will take you to the stop called Pau da Bandeira which is at the top of escalators that run down the cliff into the old town centre. It costs €1.40 and takes about 10 minutes.

Coming back the GIRO LINHA AZUL (Blue) goes from the exact same stop back to Santa Eulalia at 15 and 45 minutes past the hour until 2115 winter, 2315 summer. LINHA AZUL also stops down in the old town a minute or two before that. The town stop is in Rua Alves Correia, behind the multi storey car park and the old tall chimney. That will save a bit of walk if you are near the square and wanting to come back.

PS you must signal the driver for the bus to stop or ring the bell if wanting to get off.. All stops here are request stops only.
