We are a couple in love with the city of Lisbon, for its light, its colors and friendliness of the inhabitants. It is a very old and small town but we think it has a lot to offer. There are many beautiful, small and jagged streets that can hardly be seen at first sight. We know the neighbors by name and like to live in the city center and in typically traditional neighborhoods. In this part of the city you live as a local ("Lisboeta"), live on the esplanades and taste the traditional menus in every corner.
