Your neighbourhood guide

Welcome to Anjos

Lisbon , Portugal

Anjos is a quirky neighbourhood in one of Lisbon's most multicultural quarters: Avenida Almirante Reis. Anjos isn't a particularly beautiful neighbourhood, but it's relatvely cheap, it's ridiculously convenient and it's very central. It is also very, very lively.

You can expect plenty of 2nd hand clothes stores, quite a few typical "tascas," bakeries, bars and cafés. But it's also very close to one of the most up-and-coming neighbourhoods, Intendente, so you'll be really close to some cool shops, cafés and bars.

Anjos has it's own green line metro station and it takes you less than 5 minutes usually to get to the city centre - 6 minutes to get to Cais do Sodré. IST (Técnico) is just two stops north from that station, making it a great neighbourhood for IST students. Buses also run up and down Almirante Reis all the time.

The neighbours

Plenty of students in Anjos neighbourhood that, because of low rents and how central it is. The fact that it's a neighbourhood that is getting cooler by the minute, helps too!
