I would recommend this accomodation to everyone traveling in Lisbon. Guests come from all over, being both native Portuguese and foreigners. Even though the location is an eight story building, the appointment of the interiors and the attentiveness of the staff to requests and inquiries give the residence a touch of the Irish Bed and Breakfast personalized accomodation.

We arrive at our Bed and Breakfast for the night. Sao Sorene...something (ill fix this later) was built out of the old remains of a monastery water shed station back in the 4 centruy. This little collection of tiny houses barely big enough for me to stand erect in places is incredible. Probably one of ...
... the three children to whom Mary appeared. There was a special reverence permeating the entire site, which was huge, and you could either stay in one place or walk around to soak in this somber but uplifting experience. There was no doubt that something really special occurred here. We lit candles for all our you, so hopefully, you felt a little tinge of something yesterday....yes, that was around the time that we lit the candle :)
Our next ...
... look Lisbon has is its buildings with the "azulejos" (tiles) on the exterior of these buildings. Again, the tiles are an old tradition of Portugal and they stick to this still today. While other cities are becoming modern looking by adding modern architecture to their buildings, Portugal keeps these azulejos and grasps on to the only thing they have: their past.
They hold on to the past because they simply have no hope for the future. To quote one of the speakers ...
