Alameda

Your neighbourhood guide

Welcome to Alameda

Lisbon, Portugal

Alameda is one of the biggest and most popular student neighbourhoods in Lisbon. Because it's so close to Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), and because the rents here tend to be affordable, the student population is huge. Many apartments here are only rented to students - there are even some student residences in Alameda.

The centre of the neighbourhood is a large strip of grass, the Alameda Gardens. Here you'll find plenty of space to spread out a towel and rest in the sun, kick a ball around, or sit for picnic and beers with your squad. There's even a cool kiosk where you can seat at a table and order some very cheap, and very cold beers. It's cool.

If you live in Alameda, getting around should be very very easy. You have all the buses of Avenida Almirante Reis and a metro with two different lines (green and red). The Green Line metro takes you to the city centre (Rossio) in around 11 minutes!
