Journey Through Portugal’s Captivating Capital
Immerse yourself in the unique, bohemian, historic vibes that Lisbon has to offer. From the Romans to the Moorish warriors, the Reconquista war and immense wealth coming from the new world bringing grandiose palaces and heritage districts.
Lisbon has it all, welcoming people, cosmopolitan atmosphere, delicious gastronomy, tasteful wine, and 300 sunny days a year.
Santa Clara 1728 is an upmarket six-bedroom hotel designed by acclaimed architect Manuel Aires Mateus. It is housed inside an enchanting 18th-century building standing atop one of Lisbon's seven hills with views over the Pantheon and River Tagus.
Located on one of Lisbon’s most romantic squares, Santa Clara 1728 is the fourth in a string of slick design-led properties from hotelier João Rodrigues. The hotel has been designed in partnership with local architect Manuel Aires Mateus, whose clean, modern interiors are refreshing trimmings to the building’s ancient walls.
With only six bedrooms, this hotel doesn’t operate in the conventional sense and facilities such as gyms and business corners don’t exist, but staff will strive to meet the demands of each and every guest.
