The apartment is located at Bica, at center of Lisbon city, two minutes walk to Baixa-Chiado underground station. Close to all the finest restaurants, cafés, theatres, bars, shops, public transports, monuments. Bica is a typical neighbourhood at center of cultural life of Lisbon. The picturesque street is known for its funicular, iconic Elevador da Bica that creaks up and down the hill as tourists snap photos.
Constantly photographed by tourists, the funicular has been going up and down the hill since 1892. The tiny neighborhood, found between the Bairro Alto and Cais do Sodré districts, is made up of cobbled lanes and stairways, dating back to 1597, after a landslide. The land belonged to an influential Jew with ties to King João II, and was first inhabited by fishermen and fishwives. The name comes from a 17th-century water fountain ("bica"), although there are several in the area, that belonged to Duarte Belo, a local merchant. The fountains were popular meeting places, filling the neighborhood with life. Little affected by the 1755 earthquake, Bica offers a beautiful view of the river, and maintains the colorful 17th- and 18th-century buildings, many of them always with open doors, flower-filled balconies and laundry out to dry.
Framing the funicular are coloured houses and the river in the distance from the balcony apartment. A 3 bedroom apartment, up to 3 people, fully equipped. Perfect apartment if you want to share with anothers coworkers! The flat is on a 1rd floor and has 100m2.
