Stay

Estrela

As Lisbon has gained much more attention in recent years, both in terms of European travellers as well as from further abroad, the city can be quite packed with mass tourists. However, some parts are still, due to it’s “lack” of top-attractions, undiscovered. Estrela is a great place if you want to have a quiet, little Haven for you and your loved ones. This area also has some great Airbnb listings for a reasonable place available. From there, you may not find it too hard to get to he city centre and to Alfama. The Jardim da Estrela is at the heat of this neighborhood and with its twin church, it does offer a great place to dicover and to unwind.
