Alfama is Lisbon’s most cherished ancient gem. People fall in love with her fashionable and arty demeanour which must be a result of the town’s passionate grip on tradition, a unique character and an undying charm. Santa Helena Palace is located within the confines of this beautiful city of Alfama.

Santa Helena is a historic building that in a myriad ways clearly reflects the distinctiveness of Alfama. The building is currently undergoing fresh transformation that will see it retain it’s olden charm and culture, yet in an almost dainty way have a generous splash of modern day architectural brilliance. Origins of the Santa Helena Palace can be traced back to the 16th century when the building was exclusive property of the Sao Martinho Counts, revered officials in the Portuguese royal court.

The development is being overseen by a respected constructor whose stamp is visible in quite a number of recent iconic restorations around Lisbon. Maintaining unique 16th century features that give the building its identity, he has cleverly used the many different sized and shaped spaces within it to create a special collection of homes. There are some that are renovations and others entirely new-build. Building features to ensure comfort and plush living include high ceilings, large windows where some of the homes have private gardens, terraces and even swimming pools.

There is a total of 20 properties set on three areas within the palace grounds. These are the ‘Patio’, the ’Garden and the ‘Palace’. All the sun-kissed properties sit atop one of Alfama’s high points, allowing sweeping views of vibrant city colors below and the smooth flow of River Tagus. The properties range from one to five bedroomed apartments. Owner’s will also enjoy Secure Garage Parking and Concierge Services.

Portugal provides one of the best Golden Visa Programmes, leading to permanent residency & European passport, which you’ll be benefiting from when investing in one of those properties.
