About the property

DISCOVERIES apartment, decorated by Portuguese artist in the Castle

The Discoveries apartment is located in a building completely rebuilt in 2015, next to the ticket office of the Castle of São Jorge in Lisbon.

Great to visit Lisbon on foot, enjoy the nightlife of Alfama, to walk back and sleep soundly in the quiet of the Castle Inn Lisbon.

The apartment has one bedroom with two beds convertible into double bed on request, and a living room with kitchenette, which has 2 twin beds, sofa and all the typical utility kitchenette.

Castle Inn Lisbon, 5 new apartments with themed and uniquely decorated by Portuguese artists and all the comforts of modernity in the heart of Castelo de São Jorge.

Castle Inn Lisbon is a nineteenth century building completely rebuilt in 2015 with signing of Portuguese artists.

It is located in the heart of São Jorge Castle, next to the ticket office, side by side with the people who live there forever and that give soul to this town that is the birthplace of Lisbon. The parish in sec XIX called Santa Cruz do Castelo, including the Castle and the houses within the walls, remains broadly the same since its foundation and survived the 1755 earthquake. The first reference that you register to this residential area dates back to 138 a. C when Tenth Junius Brutus even before the creation of the Roman colony Felicitas Julia (now Lisbon) sent fortify the city.

Also the excavations that were carried out in 2014 for the reconstruction of Castle Inn Lisbon showed a part of the great archaeological wealth that exists beneath this building.

It was with respect for the past and the present requirements of the Castle Inn Lisbon was fully reconstructed with the best rehabilitation techniques and without neglecting the best acoustic and thermal insulation.

The building is fully composed of 5 apartments, as in its origin, and currently is for rental short.

With different types (studios, T1 and T2), some of the apartments have views of the Tagus.

All apartments are decorated by artists connected to the Castle has long been alluding to Fado themes, Tiles, Portuguese Discoveries, Portuguese Electrical and Tagus.

Did you know that two great Fado figures were born and lived in the Castle District? And I knew that some navigation instruments used today were invented by Portuguese? This will give you account inside the apartments.

On the ground floor it runs a concession space for restoration, where once worked one tavern, and a typical inner courtyard before designated Pateo Chalet.

Many of the apartments overlook the courtyard shared by the inhabitants of the neighborhood, causing what visitors feel like a local and live the real life of the "gem of Lisbon" in a rich environment of culture and absolute tranquility.

The apartments have air conditioning and free wi-fi and kitchenette that allows them to stay for long periods.

Also the surrounding environment is full of small shops where you can buy everything you need for day-to-day, like all other residents.

Professionals in the Castle Inn Lisbon, they are even part of this routine because they reside walls-socks with the building. The apartments are available your contacts and other useful information, to make you feel at home all the time you are with us.

Until his arrival, do not hesitate to put us all your questions or doubts.
