Almada is a Portuguese city located in the south river bank of Tejo River. Here you will find several cultural spaces, museums and monuments. The most famous of all is Santuário Nacional de Cristo Rei, a viewpoint located at 215m above the sea level with a breathtaking view of the River and the 25th of April Bridge (designed by Gustave Eifel) and a statue of Jesus Christ overlooking the city. Besides this there is also the City Museum , Casa da Cerca – contemporary art Museum and Convento dos Capuchos. Almada has a big shopping centre, Almada Fórum, where you will find many restaurants, clothing stores and a cinema. This area is also popular due to its proximity to several beaches.

Close to the beach and to the north river bank, this is the best of two worlds.
Most people living here work in Lisbon, so it is a calm area during the day.
Lisbon is a laid back city that likes to eat, drink and dance.
It has all the culture and events of a European capital, but it’s a city you can enjoy at a much slower pace. Make the most of the awesome weather at the beaches, chilling at riverside cafés or sunbathing in the city’s gardens.
From enjoying a few beers in the streets, to crazy Erasmus events in bars and clubs, there are parties to go to every night.
