Santa Catarina/Bica, the oldest and most scenic neighbourhood of Lisbon, is as well the most central you can imagine :
It's just a few steps from Bairro Alto, a stomping ground of lively bars and restaurants.
It's 2 minutes away from Chiado (Baixa-Chiado metro station, Praca do Camoes), one of this city’s most notorious shopping quarters,
It's 5 minutes away from Cais do Sodre (check it's market). Well a bit more on the way back, as streets are steep here!
It's a 10-minute walk from Rossio or Principe Real.
The most photographed street of Lisbon, Rua da Bica de Duarte Belo, is literally 20 meters from our doorstep. There, you will never get tired of watching Bica's funicular, Lisbon's spirit at it's best.
The mix in Santa Catarina is also fascinating : there is a Hermes flagship store, and an old and tiny shoe store just around!
The many restaurants, bars, galleries, shops, theaters and museums to choose from within a 5 minutes radium won't leave you with much time on your hands!
The area has got everything. From grocery shops to butchers, pharmacies bookstores and gift shops.
Mini Preco supermarket nearby.
Here are a few things I would recommend in the neighbourhood :
Start with a coffe at Cafe Brasileira. In this beautiful old place, you will feel the vibes of long gone Portuguese poets and writers.
Ride the Tram 28 (catch it up the street!), an amazing ride around the city (for just the price of a regular tram ticket).
Check the view at Miradouro Sta Catarina.
Go to a local place for lunch Praca de Camoes), and ask for a Bifana (sandwich with a very thin steak inside. To be eaten with mustard!)
To head to the beach just walk down the road and jump on a train at the Cais do Sodré Train Station.
Many local good and cheap restaurants in our neighbourhood.
Metro Baixa Chiado is a 5-minute walk to our flat.
From the airport :
Either the metro or a taxi (they are cheap, and the ride won't excess 20 euros for 4).Get the full listing »
