Additional Location Information
The apartment (Rua Cruz de Santa ApolÃ³nia) - leading to Campo de Sta Clara, the square where Lisbon's most famous market - Feira da Ladra - is held in the early afternoon every Tuesday and Saturday. Behind the various bric-a-brac, you can also uncover second-hand clothes, books, disks, and, if you dig deep enough, some genuinely valuable antiques.
You can easily reach the city center by foot or by taking the famous tram number 28, a scenic route crossing most of the tourist neighborhoods of the city center. A definite must for any visitor to Lisbon. You can also walk to Alfama and, from there, to the castle and Baixa, Chiado and Bairro Alto.
In the neighborhood and in the nearby GraÃ§a, there are several â€œmustsâ€ not to miss on your visit:
â€“ PanteÃ£o Nacional â€“ Church of Santa EngrÃ¡cia: When the construction began in 1682, it was planned as one of the Lisbonâ€™s biggest churches. However, it had been long neglected and the construction was completed only in 1966! It was then that the PanteÃ£o Nacional was inaugurated. Here you will find cenotaphs of Portugal's heroes. The interior is colossal and contains the tombs of historic and literary figures - from Vasco da Gama to AmÃ¡lia Rodrigues, the famous fado singer.
â€“ The convent of SÃ£o Vicente de Fora: Portugalâ€™s first king, Afonso Henriques laid the foundations of this church in order to fulfill a vow to construct Christian Houses of worship where Portuguese and European crusaders would lay to rest. Inaugurated in 1629, the church was severely damaged by the 1755 earthquake. It has been recently renovated and deserves a visit. The view from the rooftop is one of the greatest in Lisbon.
â€“ Some "Miradouros" (vantage points) miradors with amazing views over the castle S Jorge, the river Tejo and the city roofs. (miradors of GraÃ§a with an open-air cafÃ© and Senhora do Monte 600m further on). The views are even more spectacular at sunset. Donâ€™t miss it!
-The Fado and Portuguese guitar Museum: Situated in Rua da bica do Sapato were you can have a historical visit about the most the traditional Portuguese music-Fado- and famous Portuguese fado singers like Amalia Rodrigues Carlos do Carmo and Mariza. During the summer (Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays) you can dinner in a small square of the museum, listening to Fado, performed by many fado singers, live! A night program you certainly wonâ€™t miss!
