Property information

Ex Libris is an expression in Latin that literally means “from the Books of”. Ex Libris is a testament to the vibrant literary and journalistic scene that has always been part of the street, having housed the offices of O Diário Ilustrado, which was shut down by the government in 1956, and the bookshop Livraria Camões. This building's excellent location places it in the heart of the action, where things are always happening. With 18 apartments spread over 6 floors, Ex-Libris redefines the concept of Premium accommodation, offering 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom and 3 bedroom suites in a building that combines sophistication, tradition and contemporary design. The interior design reflects a modern space with traditional elements, emphasising Portuguese design and young, local emerging artists. These elements include paintings by Maisa Champalimaud, wood furniture designed by Cabanas and a lobby featuring Urban Art by the Portuguese graphic designer Add Fuel, who adds a contemporary touch to traditional Portuguese azulejo tiles. Lisbon is the place to be. What could be more fitting than to stay in a meticulously designed and decorated suite right in the heart of the city.

Neighbourhood information

Lisbon is a city that instils in us an immense desire to discover it. On each street, on each hill, on each street corner, one encounters distant places that immediately make us feel at home. For visitors and residents alike, the neighbourhood of Chiado is synonymous with elegance and all things fashionable. Chiado is where much of Lisbon life takes place; here, friends arrange their most important encounters in its cafés, or meet for languorous dinners that may all but last into the wee hours. Chiado, along with neighbouring Bairro Alto and the hip Príncipe Real district, boasts the best restaurants, pastry shops and bars that the city has to offer. Chiado is also synonymous with culture, a place that has traditionally been the haunt of Portuguese intellectuals. Here, one can find various statues of Portuguese literary figures. Being the cultural hotspot that it is, Chiado is also home to several theatres, including Teatro S. Luiz, Teatro da Trindade, Teatro de São Carlos – Portugal's only opera house – and lastly, but perhaps most importantly, Teatro Nacional D. Maria II, located in neighbouring Rossio.
