Overview
Condo/Apartment -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 5
Lisbon, Lisbon District, Central Portugal
Why choose Madragoa? Easy, because Madragoa resembles a lot like Bairro Alto in many ways (labyrinthine streets, charming old buildings covered with tiles, many traditional restaurants and cafés) but is far less touristy. You can easily walk anywhere you like in central Lisbon from this place - Baixa, Bica, Chiado, Cais do Sodré, Bairro Alto - and the walk will be pleasant and beautiful. This typical quarter from Santos neighborhood, is located among Cais do Sodré, Lapa and Bica. It used to be a fisherman's neighborhood and it has a strong fado tradition. It feels like a small village inside Lisbon, where kids are still free to play on the street and people take care of each others.
