What makes this apartment unique
This apartment has a great view over the city and the river. It's full of sunlight all year round.
The building is original from the XVIIIth century, right after the great earthquake of Lisbon which took place in 1755. It was built in a typical 'Pombalino' style, a type of construction and architecture that are protected by law and candidate to UNESCO's World Heritage Patrimony classification. The building is mainly assembled with wooden beams, in a “cage” like structure inspired in naval construction from the period. A type of construction quite advanced for its time and considered to be the first anti-earthquake type of construction in the world. It is flexible, but it doesn’t break.
The renovation of the building and the apartment took in consideration this historical heritage. However, you will find a modern apartment .
