This is how José Saramago’s novel begins and describes Ricardo Reis’s reunion with the land that was once his. A few steps away from the city’s most notable attractions, you will find the memories that are part of the authentic Lisbon, while you let yourself be seduced by the Tagus River.
Start your journey in the age of the Discoveries, visiting the Jerónimos Monastery, the greatest expression of the Manueline style. From the Jerónimos Monastery, let yourself be guided by the architectural elegance of the CCB (Centro Cultural de Belém) and by the ultra-modern lines of the MAAT (Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology) and the Champalimaud Foundation, which take us to the future, maintaining Lisbon’s relationship with its river intact.
Meet or rediscover these two Lisbon’s, the Lisbon of the navigators and sailors, of the poets and prose writers and of the people who, to this day, guarantee the authentic character that defines Lisbon. In the end, Lisbon will also become yours. Here, where the sea has ended and the land awaits.
The history that exists outside continues inside
The richness of the city is present in every architectural and decorative detail and will make your stay unforgettable. Enjoy the refinement of one of the 24 rooms we have waiting for you and let yourself be surprised by the view over the typical Ajuda neighbourhood or the imposing façades of the Memória Church, highlighted by the never-ending Lisbon sun.
