No one would say that this shabby, old building is actually a small palace and hides a beautiful, rich interior with decorations, and furniture showing the luxury of the aristocratic life in the past centuries. When we went to the San Antao Street we were 'overwhelmed' by the bustling life of it. Busy restaurants and terraces, shops and cafeterias full of people. It was a relief to get inside the Alentejo 'house' and be surprised by the richness and elegance of the place. It is definitely a place to visit and spend a little time there. There is also a restaurant and a bar inside, and also a small shop selling delicacies.

If you’d rather visit a minimalist yet trendy bar that is frequented by the locals, visit Clube da Esquina, which is a big favorite of the younger crowd. This is a very easy place to find during the weekends since young people can always be found sipping on caipirinha around the street near it. The decorations are very cool and the DJs spin various types of music, such as electronica, house [...]
