Welcome to Intendente

Lisbon, Portugal

Intendente is possibly the hippest, coolest neighbourhood in Lisbon at the moment. Located behind one of the city's main avenues, Avenida Almirante Reis, Intendente is central and convenient. Furthermore, because living here has only recently become fashionable, rents are quite low.

It isn’t fancy like Chiado, typical like Alfama, or as famous as Bairro Alto, but Intendente has now transformed itself from up-and-coming neighbourhood, to full on hip central. It has an edge that appeals to designers, musicians and artists. It also has many of the coolest new bars and cafés of the city. You’ll find plenty of skaters and street artists hanging around or practising here, and the main square is often a stage for dance groups to perform and other random moments like that.

Intendente takes its name from Praça do Intendente, a small and oddly-shaped square just a street away from Avenida Almirante Reis. Just a few years ago, the square was full of run down buildings, but it’s been recovered quite nicely and is now actually very beautiful. While there are still some rundown buildings, the overall feeling of the square is chilled.

The neighbours

The (currently) affordable rents of Intendente have seen a large student and young adult population move into the neighbourhood.

You'll fall in love with

The Praça do Intendente. The square that gave the neighbourhood its name will always have something going on. Throughout the week, the square's bars are full of artists and students having a good time

Interesting points

Casa Independente. It’s an unmarked mansion on one side of the Praça do Intendente that has been converted into one of the coolest café/bars of Lisbon. Plus, they serve some pretty good drinks.

The lifestyle

Since Intendente is a recently-renovated area, the lifestyle is fairly driven by the alternative-indie people who are usually the early adopters of the up-and-coming spots around town.
