Lisbon’s most colorful bairro
Diverse and welcoming medieval Mouraria is one of Lisbon’s oldest quarters. Name Mouraria literally means Moorish quarter and it is often considered the city’s soul being the birthplace of Fado, Portuguese melancholic folk music, one of the “F trinity” of Portugal: Fado, Fátima (Portugal most important Catholic pilgrimage destination) and football. It is also one of the most multicultural neighbourhoods of the city, integrating more than 50 different nationalities. It has recently become an artistic, cosmopolitan and therefore trendiest spot of Lisbon, attracting a number of home hunters and international investors.
What established Mouraria on the real estate map of Lisbon is most certainly planned and more importantly careful regeneration and face-lifting of Mouraria undertaken by the Lisbon City Hall and various national and international developers, making this part of the city very interesting for younger home buyers and thusly national and international investors. Mouraria is also well connected with strong transport links by busses or metro lines.
