Alfama 2 is the second and upper floor of a very old building fully refurbished in 2012 by the owner architect and can accommodate up to 4 people. Renovation optimized to the fullest the space of the apartment, creating an ambiance with lots of light, harmony and functionality. Creative decoration brings a touch of elegance and coziness to the flat. Lastly, the views over the Castle (almost feels like you can touch it!) and the river add to the enjoyment of your stay.

We found this apartment a great choice, as it was slightly out of town and within the walls of the St. George's Castle, Lisbon. Consequently, the neighbourhood was very quiet at night and by day the hustle and bustle of the tourists queuing for tickets...More

About the neighborhood
Alfama 2 is located at 3, Espirito Santo Street, 2nd floor left, inside the first walls of Saint George Castle, in the Alfama neighbourhood. Walking in this centuries years old neighbourhood is like diving in history: Lisbon was born here and grew along the centuries towards the river. The area is mostly pedestrian, extremely picturesque, composed of cute narrow streets and tiny squares. During the day the quarter is usually crowded, as are the small grocery stores, local restaurants and fado houses. In the evening the human tide that visits the Castle vanish into other parts of town and the quarter turns to be very quiet and calm.
