Open the windows and let in romance from an epoch gone by.
Next to the Ancient Art museum, in the historical and romantic Rua das Janelas Verdes, there is an austere and discreet stately house to behold, dating from the 18th century. This is a house where one wants to discover every detail, feel its romantic and welcoming atmosphere and relive the stories of a past Lisbon.
Tradition has it that this ancient palace belonging to the Count of Sabugosa was the residence and inspiration for Eça de Queirós’s “O Ramalhete”, the famous house featured in his masterpiece “Os Maias”. The memory of his presence lives on in the period mood that surrounds and envelopes us.Its Neo-Classical interior features a living room that exalts the fireplace, the ancient piano, the furniture, the books, the paintings and the small artworks.
An elegant spiral staircase leads into the large, cheerful and sunny rooms. From the library a romantic garden is visible, the iron tables and chairs, the small fountain and the climbing plant wound into the iron stairs climbing into the balconies of the rooms all catch the eye.
The city of Lisbon and its Tagus River take their place as the background for the hotel As Janelas Verdes, lost in time yet such an admirable combination of the past and the present that it warrants a visit.
