Lisbon, the largest city in Portugal, has been its capital since the 13th century. It’s a city in which it’s hard to be bored since there’s so much to do and so much to see. Its rich history includes having been the starting point for numerous maritime and colonial expeditions in the 15th century which assured it of prosperity and international importance.
Today, Lisbon is one of the most atypical of European capitals, which charms visitors with its varied and diverse neighborhoods where the traditional blends together with the contemporary. Anyone coming to Lisbon should be sure to visit Belem, the quarter dedicated to Portugal’s explorers like Vasco da Gama, who was the first to reach India by the sea in 1497, and its monuments, some of which are UNESCO world heritages. One such monument is the superb Tower of Belem, built in the 16th century on the banks of the Tage in order to assure the surveillance of the port. Another important monument is the celebrated Hieronymite monastery also known as the Monastery of Jeronimos which is situated on the Praça do Império in the heart of Belem. Construction was initiated by Manuel I in 1502 and was completed 50 years later. This majestic structure celebrated the grandeur of the many explorers who sailed from Lisbon to conquer the world, and it’s here that the most illustrious of them all, Vasco da Gama is buried. The building is still magnificent today, as is the superb Santa Maria cathedral whose stained glass windows and ribbed vault are truly awesome.
The Jeronimos 8, Lisbon’s first design hotel, is located in the famous Belem quarter, facing the Jeronimos monastery. The contrast between the exterior and the interior of the hotel is striking and immediately wins over guests by its charm soon as soon they as walk inside. The interior décor uses three principal colors: chocolate, crimson and cream, which can be found in the different common areas, notably the bar, although they are visible in the rooms as well. The interior design is characterized by superb wrought iron statues with surprising shapes, like those of people with wings and enormous feet.
The 65 rooms and suites with their pure lines are all elegant and modern. The walls are lacquered white, the furniture dark and design, the bathrooms are in marble, and the light natural and abundant. Guests immediately feel at ease anticipating a calm and serene stay. The largest rooms and suites have balconies with a view of the adjacent monastery, or a wooden terrace with deck chairs for total rest and contemplation. The interior courtyard surprises guests with its grass and bamboo, and is ideal for taking advantage of the late afternoon sun to relax, sheltered from the bustle and noise of the city. Finally, before going out to discover Lisbon’s restaurants and nightlife, the hotel’s pop-chic wine bar, the Bussaco, is the place to go and be pleasantly surprised by Portuguese wines or for a glass of champagne or a cocktail, accompanied by very pleasant and tasty snacks.
