In Focus | Santa Clara 1728 Lisbon

The enchanting Santa Clara 1728 hotel is set in one of Lisbon's most romantic neighbourhoods, surrounded by breathtaking monuments and beautiful palaces. Created by design-led hotelier João Rodrigues and redesigned by Manuel Aires Mateus, the renovation has remained true to the buildings history and original heritage. Definitely on the must-visit list!

 The hotel's beautiful simplicity is a perfect balance to the ancient roots of the building.
