This neighborhood in the heart of Lisbon has over 900 years of history. In Mouraria the Muslims settled following the Christian conquest and it is speculated that in the melancholy sound of the Islamic chants is to be found the origin of the Fado genre of music. The Arab urban planning legacy is still visible in its streets and it is a neighborhood that has always been linked with the trading activities that the capital has carried on over the centuries
In this and the surrounding neighborhoods, originated the first productions of Portuguese Mudejar art, that came the Manueline art.
The sadness and melancholy of his songs are the origin of Fado. Born in our street, next to the Three Alley Mills, Maria Severa Onofriana, Portuguese fado singer first and last expression of this period.
In front of the fado house , was born in the twentieth century, Fernando Mauricio that was considered the "king of the Moorish quarter fado" .
Our street is now part of the iconography of Fado.
Above, a Pink House Pink Platter of Lagares, Mariza grew, the more international contemporary Portuguese fado singer, was there that Mariza learnt how ti sing Fado.
After the inauguration of a Shopping Center of the Moorish in Martim Moniz, the neighborhood has become a very busy place and welcoming.
Currently, the Moorish quarter is considered one of the safest neighborhoods in the capital, it is a meeting point for people of different cultures and, simultaneously, a site that keeps alive their ancient folk traditions, as confirmed by the existence of several fado houses , bars, taverns and local cultural and sporting a pair of commercial establishments Chinese and Indian origin, among others.

Cute little house with easy access to cafes, restaurants and sights. Glad we stayed in Sandra's house in Mouraria because it has far fewer tourists than the Alfama. Access to the Castle and central Lisbon was an easy walk away. Neighborhood is charming; can't get enough of those laneways and tiles! It can get noisy with people walking by at night but upstairs in the bedroom, we couldn't hear a thing. Loved sitting on the upstairs balcony with a cold drink. It was a treat in the summer afternoon but be careful: there is no outside door handle so there is a risk of locking yourself out of the house if the door closes. Accessing the house with self check-in was easy. Sandra gives clear and easy-to-follow instructions.

Dear future guests, This apartment is in a great central location. There are stores where you can purchase basic items such as eggs, bred and drinks. The apartment is very cozy and comfortable. My family and I enjoyed it very much. If you are looking for a quiet place, this apartment might not be ideal for you because many tourist and people walk by and there are many restaurants and bars in the area that create a bit of noise in the evenings especially if your on the terrace. It wasn't a problem for us because this is the definition of a city life. Overall it was a great experience and we would gladly stay here again if we come back to Lisbon.

A very charming place to stay in Lisboa, we stayed for 6 days and it was amazing : the neighborhood is really nice, there is a lot of restaurant and bar in the area, we practically did everything by walk. The nice terrace was really much appreciated for breakfast with a nice view on the city.

Sandra's home is perfectly situated in the best part of Lisbon as far as we are concerned. It is such a quaint area with a lot to discover in this area. Sandra's house was clean, neat and tidy. She has a beautiful terrace upstairs off one of the bedrooms allowing for a beautiful view and a lovely breeze. The house is so well insulated that you can not hear the noise from the street which is not common. Her house offers all the amenities that a couple or family would need to feel like they live in Lisbon. Sandra was very welcoming and flexible for our needs during check-in, which was a plus in our eyes. Lisbon has grown over the last couple of years especially in Sandra's area with wonderful restaurants and also new boutiques. We had a wonderful time and will return to Sandra's place again. Thank you Sandra.

The house is located in the lively neighbourhood of Mouraria which is quite noisy (events everywhere..) but the house is located in such a place that it's close to everything and still slightly off thus we were always able to have real sound sleep during the nights. The house is old and isolation is not great, so anytime someone walks by you can hear what they are talking about. Besides this, it's really charming little house with a nice terrace with a view, very comfortable beds, and nicely equipped kitchen. I would return here and recommend this to ppl wanting to stay in Mouraria.

I'm a dynamic and enterprising person. Given the difficulties we are experiencing right now in Portugal, decided not to depress and fight, until I came across this idea of tourist accommodation that is really is my thing!

Personally I never liked the concept of hotel, I find them impersonal and equal to each other regardless of where in the world are.

I like people, cultures, the "mix" with the people and customs of each country or locality and "drink" your best. So, I think this project will be developed by me with great commitment, pride and love to receive. Respect the space and freedom of my guests, supporting them at all times and providing them a place that only a local person can do. I am a simple person, close, friendly, honest, charismatic and tolerant.

Rules?! They are important to good coexistence between people, it is a fact. However, it is believed that each person has the same awareness of respect and tolerance. It's just that I expect of my guests.

Can not live without my family, without my friends that keep close to me, since childhood and adolescence. I love to eat, drink and socialize. I love music, movies, parties ... but can not live without the moments of silence, quiet peace...!

I also hope you to come and enjoy all that I prepared with such care and attention, including the pampering and attention that are tailored to each guest and their needs. I sincerely appreciate that ... and of course recommend.

All the best and see you soon.


Sou uma pessoa dinamica e empreendedora. Perante as dificuldades que estamos a viver neste momento em Portugal, resolvi não deprimir e lutar, até que dei com esta ideia de arrendamento turistico que muito me agrada.

Pessoalmente nunca gostei de hoteis, acho-os impessoais e iguais entre si independentemente do local do mundo onde estejamos.

Gosto de pessoas, de culturas, de me "misturar" com as gentes e hábitos de cada local ou país e "beber" do seu melhor. Por isso, penso que este projeto será por mim desenvolvido com muito empenho, brio e gosto por receber. Respeitar o espaço e liberdade dos meus hospedes, apoiando-os em tudo e proporcionando-lhes momentos que só um local poderá fazer. Sou uma pessoa simples, próxima, afável, honesta, carismática e tolerante.

Regras?! São importantes na boa convivencia entre as pessoas, é um facto. No entanto, há que acreditar que cada pessoa tem esta mesma consciencia de respeito e tolerancia. É apenas isto que espero dos meus hospedes.

Não vivo sem a minha familia, sem os meus amigos que cultivo e mantenho, desde infancia e adolescencia. Adoro comer, beber e conviver. Gosto muito de musica, de cinema, de festas...mas também não passo sem os momentos de silêncio, sossego a paz. Não sei o que diga mais sobre mim?!

Espero ainda que venham e usufruam de tudo o que preparei com tanto carinho e atenção, inclusive dos mimos e atenções que sejam adaptados a cada hospede e suas necessidades. Quero sinceramente, que apreciem e claro...recomendem.

Tudo de bom e até breve.
