An unforgetble experience

From now on you will be able to experience a different Lisbon, in a more exclusive and inspiring way: come and stay in the same apartment where the great poet Fernando Pessoa lived. Here, in the same environment, he lived, wrote and dreamed. Through the same windows he saw the Lisbon of the beginning of the century passing by.

 

It is this experience that we invite you to live now.

The Apartment

This spacious apartment of 120 square meters, is localized on the 2º floor of an old building from 1857. The structure of the apartment is all original and the space has been carefully decorated, creating a very cozy and charming environment. There are 2 bedrooms with air conditioning, 1 living room and 1 dining room, 1 bathroom and a kitchen decorated with rare Portuguese tiles “azulejos” from the end of the 19th century. The apartment also has a comfortable reading corner.

Localization

The location is also a very high point: rua de São Bento, nº 17 ( previous nº 19 ) - historic center of Lisbon . Just 10 minutes walk to Bairro Alto and Chiado, next to supermarkets, bakeries, bookstores, museums and restaurants and with transport passing at the door of the house, including the emblematic 28, - the same electric that Fernando Pessoa used to catch, and which operates until today interconnecting the entire old city.

Fernando Pessoa and this apartment

The period in which Fernando Pessoa lived in this apartment (1905 - 1906) is extremely important in his life, since it marks his reunion with Portugal after 9 years living in Durban - South Africa, with his mother, brothers and stepfather who had been transferred. In 1905, Pessoa returned alone to Lisbon aboard the Herzog to attend the Superior Course of Letters, planning to live with his mother's sister, Aunt Anica, in Rua de São Bento nº 17, at the second floor left door- exactly in this same apartment which we are pleased to welcome you.
