A Palace that tells the story of a city
The Palácio Camões apartments occupy the entire upper part of this building classified as a National Monument. Raised in the second half of the 18th century on the ruins of a 16th-century palace – destroyed by the earthquake that hit the city in 1755 -, this Pombalina property was soon imposed by its majestic aesthetics.
Eça de Queirós, one of the most important writers of Portuguese Literature, made this palace even more famous when he dedicated a passage in his book O Mandarim: “I bought, lived in the yellow palace, to Loreto: the magnificence of my installations are well known for their indiscreet engravings of the French Illustration”. The author also mentions that “some of the most famous parties” took place here in Lisbon.
Also well-known are its 18th-century tile panels, which still captivate the attention of visitors today. Experience feeling ‘at home’ in this emblematic palace, which is part of the memory and life of the city!
Luís de Camões Square: this city is a poem
In the transition between the elegant Chiado and the bohemian Bairro Alto, is one of the most iconic and busiest squares in the metropolis. We speak of Praça Luís de Camões, where a bronze statue rises to what is considered the highest Portuguese poet of the Renaissance. Represented with a laurel wreath on his head, this imposing sculpture, inaugurated in 1867, is a tribute to one of the most emblematic figures in the city.
Luís Vaz de Camões, who lived during the 16th century, is the author of the epic poem Os Lusíadas, one of the most important national literary works. Throughout ten poems, the Lisbon poet celebrates the heroic, seafaring and warrior feats that fill the pages of the History of Portugal. The influence of his creation on national identity is so relevant that the Day of Portugal, Camões and the Portuguese Communities is celebrated on June 10, the date of his death.
Embellished by the Portuguese sidewalk with elements that refer to the epic work, such as ships and mermaids, Praça Luís de Camões is an essential meeting point in the life of the metropolis. Here, for example, passes the famous Tram 28, which can guide you in discovering the charms of downtown Lisbon and its historic districts.
During your stay, be sure to explore the places that, even today, proudly assert themselves as guardians of the city’s memory and tradition. Take some time to walk around the areas of the Castle of São Jorge, Alfama, Bica or Madragoa. You will not forget the beauty of this heritage.
