3 THINGS NOT TO MISS AT THE PESTANA RUA AUGUSTA LISBOA:
1. A millennium of history on your doorstep
The Portuguese adore downtown Lisbon, but few people can boast about actually living there. The Pestana CR7 is just a few steps from the Praça do Comércio, the largest and most important square in the country. On the left is the imposing Lisbon Cathedral, the unavoidable Fado de Alfama, the steep streets that lead up to the Castle and in each stone of the pavement there is a story, which leads the way to Graça. On the right-hand side, there are Ribeira das Naus, Cais do Sodré and, further on, Belém and its witnesses from the Age of Discoveries. The Tagus River as a backdrop, reflects the quintessential light of Lisbon and stunning views, right in front of the hotel.
2. The New Lisbon
Urban culture is Lisbon's big boom. From a city that listened to fado and venerated pavement life, a new capital has come into being that interprets ephemeral art and reinvents traditional materials. Explore the rejuvenated areas of Intendente and Mouraria, where multiculturalism and artistic performances are what gives it the name of this new Lisbon that is taking shape. Now, Fado is an unmissable mural and Amália can be seen on the pavements, in addition to being heard in the streets. You can't find anything like it anywhere else in the world.
3. The eclectic nightlife from Bairro Alto to Cais do Sodré
This pink-coloured street is not old, but it’s already legendary. In the old port area of the city, an eclectic nightlife has come into being, inspired by the new generations. Door-to-door, the bars are endless – you could either wind up in an old sailor's bar or end up listening to the latest in electronic music. Old inns have become the new discotheques, in an atmosphere where everyone will feel welcome. In Bairro Alto, tradition is maintained and so are the glasses in hand. The warm nights of Lisbon offer the perfect stage to experience the nightlife like the locals: on the street.
