Antiga Casa do Castelo is nestled in the centre of the oldest neighbourhood in Lisbon. You may become a true 'Lisboeta' in our little village inside the castle walls.
The house sits on the old Roman road 'Rua Direita-Rua Santa Cruz do Castelo' and archaeological finds just under the corner of house date to the 5th/6th century BC (exhibited in the castle museum). The castle walls have helped to preserve the neighbourhood and traditional ways of life in this 'village atmosphere' in the centre of Lisbon. The house itself is a well-appointed two-storey townhouse consisting of a first floor with an open-plan kitchen/dining area, sitting room, an 'office' with books, writing table, tourist information and WC. French doors open to a view of the Castle parade ground. The fine rugs and subtle decor are a treat. The en-suite bedroom is upstairs with a small view over roof tops, the river and Palmela Castle in the distance. We have everything you need + free Wi-Fi.
