Historical building where once lived Porto’s most influential architect.
Marques da Silva defined Avenida dos Aliados and was the author of some of the most important monuments of the city: Estação de São Bento, Teatro São João or Casa de Serralves.
The great architect lived in the area now occupied by this apartment, in the beginning of the last century.
The wide and sunny balcony is facing Porto's ex-libris - Torre dos Clérigos - and stands out in the same street of Livraria Lello.

The space
The apartment has two complete bathrooms (one in the suite, one in the living area), an open and fully equipped kitchen with a natural vertical garden, two balconies (one turned to the west in the suite, one turned to the south, in the living room).
Around 100 m2 of total area. Extra windows for temperature and sound protection.

The historical building Quatro Estações shows the 4 seasons magnificently sculptured in the façade. Was designed in the the early 20th century by Marques da Silva, one of Porto's most influential architects, also author of Teatro São João, Casa de Serralves and Estação de São Bento (recently included in the 10 most beautiful railway stations in the world).
The website of Marques da Silva Foundation (FIMS) informs that the architect lived in this building one hundred years ago, in the area now ocuppied by the this apartment.

The building has two elevators, and there is a public car parking in the street.

About the extra-beds:

Besides the couple bed (2m per 1.60 large), which is permanent in the apartment, there are 3 single beds (2m per 90 large) that can be used, that are stored in another place in the same floor.
When the extra-beds are not needed (in the case of a couple), there will be no extra-beds in the apartment.
When needed, it's possible to do different arrangements: 1 or even 2 single beds (besides the couple bed) in the suite, the others in different places of the living area. It's also possible to put all the others in the living area.
The sofa complements the couple bed and the 3 single beds, turning suitable for 6 persons in the conditions described above.
