Within walking distance you will find Comercio Square and the entire riverside area with its strong Pombaline character, but which today stands out for the wide range of bars and restaurants that have made their mark in the most trendy magazines and where you can enjoy a romantic sunset.

Downtown Lisboeta – where our hotel is located, invites you to get lost in its streets full of life and colour, from Chiado – the favourite place of the poet Fernando Pessoa, where you cannot fail to order “a bica” (a coffee) on the terrace of A Brasileira – passing through Carmo Street to Camoes Square, where you will find many bookstores, cafes, restaurants, museums, theatres and fashion stores. Right next door is Bairro Alto, with its narrow alleys and a mandatory meeting point for those who enjoy the night and fado music.

But there is much more to know in the city and its surroundings, which is easily accessible by metro or train. In the vicinity of My Story Hotel Ouro is the Metro Station (downtown Chiado) and also the Rossio train station that takes us to Sintra, and the Cais do Sodre train station that takes us along the Estoril line to Cascais, so you can get to know all the charm of the Lisbon Riviera.

Aurea Street, the iconic “Ouro Street”.

This street connects Comercio Square (Terreiro do Paço) to D. Pedro IV Square (aka Rossio). It is one of the most beautiful examples of Pombaline civil architecture, partly thanks to the Tagus River. Its buildings stand on wooden stakes and the flow of the river floods its subsoil.

Ouro Street is a noble street with a commercial character, which in the 15th century was already called Ourives do Ouro Street.

After the earthquake, and as a way of maintaining the tradition, it was decreed that it would house the city’s goldsmiths and that the remaining stores be handed over to watchmakers, although it also hosted bookstores, pasture houses and inns.

It was also on this street that Portugal Bank was created in 1846, but after several vicissitudes it ended up changing its headquarters and disappearing from this place. However, this street still preserves the imposing façade with four marble columns and two lion heads. We can also still admire three magnificent balconies belonging to Santander & Totta Bank, by Ventura Lino.

It is worth strolling along Aurea Street, enjoying the beauty of the façades and feeling the weight of history and the many stories that took place here.

The charm of Ouro Street lies, as it always has, not only in its location in the heart of the city, but also in its daily human flavour.

So, at My Story Hotel Ouro…

The story is golden, but it is the people who shine!
