Additional Location Information
Other details at FB, same name but with dots.
The Mouraria is one of the most traditional neighborhoods of Lisbon , which takes its name from the fact that D. Afonso Henriques (ower 1st king) , after the conquest of Lisbon , have confined an area of the city for Muslims . It was in this neighborhood that the Moors remained after the Christian Reconquest . In turn , the christians were confined to districts Castle and Alfama .
In this and the surrounding neighborhoods , originated the first productions of Portuguese Mudejar art , that would give way for the emergence of the Manueline style , sometimes also called the Portuguese late Gothic or flaming.
The sadness and melancholy of Moorish music are at the origin of the famous Fado.In this neighborhood lived singers as Severa , Fernando Maurício and grew Mariza , the most international contemporary Portuguese fado singer .
After the public opening of the shopping center in the Moorish Martim Moniz , the neighborhood has become a very busy and friendly place . Currently , the Moorish quarter is a meeting point for people of different cultures and , simultaneously , a site that keeps alive their ancient folk traditions , as confirmed by the existence of several fado houses , bars , taverns and cultural and sports authorities to pair of shops of Chinese and Indian origin , among others .
The house is just a five minute walk from the Martim Moniz Metro station (green line connecting the Portela Airport and Santa Apolonia train station ) , the bus terminal , taxi and famous tram 28.At Square Martim Moniz there is an underground parking lot.
Also a five minute walk are Rossio and Restauradoures and a little after Bairro Alto and Chiado , known as the quintessential local nightlife .
To the Castle of São Jorge , Alfama and Bairro da Graça , with its magnificent sights of the city , the way is always up, so we must expect 10 to 15 minute walk .
Near the Hobbit House Lisbon you have everything you could need , varied trade , markets and supermarkets , pharmacy , restaurants , hospital , police station , etc. .
If you want to go to the beaches of Costa da Caparica using public transportation , Transtejo River Terminal , is located at 20 minute walk (less by subway), on a pleasant walk along the Tagus estuary . It is also at Cais do Sodré that locates the rail terminal to Cascais which gives access to several beaches and the beautiful village of Cascais . The train to Sintra (Rossio station) it's only a seven minutes walk from the house.
