Bairro Alto is one of the oldest neighbourhoods in Lisbon and is situated in the heart of the city only a few moments walk from Chiado. The area is made up of narrow streets lined with period houses and apartments dating back to the turn of the last century and historically many artisans had their work premises in this area and some still exist to this day.
The superb location and its artisan past has attracted a younger more artistic crowd who have moved into the area renovating property and turning older style apartments into bright and modern living spaces. This in turn has led to the area becoming the focal point for the Lisbon nightlife with stylish shops, bars and restaurants springing up alongside the more traditional Fado houses and tascas. The area is now bustling with activity during the day and very busy at night.
The neighbouring Santa Catarina & Bica are equally as popular places to live due to their central location and the character of the properties available. They are slightly more relaxed in atmosphere than Bairro Alto and benefit from being closer to the river which means many apartments and houses benefit from fabulous views. Bica also has one of Lisbons three famous funicular trams which adds to the charm of the area.
