Hello Lisbon Baixa Ouro Collection Apartments is located in the heart of the city's historical district. If you search “Rua do Ouro” in your navigation app, it will accept the search but will direct you to “Rua Áurea” (both mean Gold Street). Ask any local for Rua do Ouro and they will not hesitate to point you in the right direction, even if there isn’t any sign with this name. A street full of history, Rua do Ouro is today known by the name given to it by the people of Lisbon at the time the city was rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake and King D. José I ordered the installation of all the goldsmiths here. Rua do Ouro may not exist in the official toponymy, but it certainly exists in the private jargon of Lisbon dwellers. Curiously enough, it connects two other places with a similar story: two of Lisbon's most important squares, Praça do Comércio and Praça de D. Pedro IV, are also commonly known by their popular names, Terreiro do Paço and Rossio, respectively.
