Lisbon's cultural and bohemian heart
Set on the 7th hill of Lisbon, Bairro Alto is one of the oldest and most picturesque districts of the city, where life truly changes from day to night.
During the day, this is a quiet but lively neighbourhood where bohemian inhabitants mix with older residents and it is possible to visit traditional shops or alternative shops, old bookstores, typical restaurants and art galleries. In the narrow streets of the neighbourhood, you will find charming details of the typical architecture and colourful balconies with clothes hanging to dry, where all the residents know each other.
At night, the neighbourhood becomes one of the most vibrant areas of Lisbon where entertainment is abundant, with many restaurants, typical taverns, intimate and lively bars or fado houses. Here, crowds of all ages mix and it is difficult not to have a memorable evening.
Within the boundaries of Bairro Alto, you will find some of the city's landmarks such as the São Pedro de Alcântara Viewpoint, which offers one of the best panoramic views of the city, the baroque Church of São Roque and the Gothic ruins of the Convent of Carmo.
In addition to the traditional properties, which are being renovated at an ever-increasing pace, there are modern buildings that make this neighbourhood offer good prospects for residential investment, especially for local and medium-range accommodation.
