Lately the neighbourhood has been invigorated with the renovation of the old houses and new restaurants where Fado music can be enjoyed. The property available is mainly small apartments although some houses may sometimes be found for sale. The apartments are often packed full of character due to their age and many have wonderful views of the river.
