View of the Rossio from the living room at Casa Travessa

Step directly from your ancient lane into this sunny apartment. With its charming view of the Igreja do Carmo, Lisbon's soaring monument to the 1755 earthquake, this apartment is perfect for an exciting short stay or a restful long one.

A quick three-minute walk to the Rossio, Casa Travessa provides easy access to Lisbon's best shops, restaurants and transportation... while hidden away on a quiet residential lane.

Compact and cozy with an airy, open floor plan, Casa Travessa is the ideal base for a couple traveling alone or with a child.

The 19th-century building also houses Casa Santana, very convenient if you are travelling with extended family or friends.

watching the kids play football in the street, then coming back home each night to our own little apartment."
