Located outside the city centre, there’s the residential neighbourhood of Olaias. The neighbourhood constructed at the end of the 20th century has colourful buildings. Here you will find cafes, hair-salons and groceries stores, with all you may need. There is also Olaias Shopping centre where you will find products that don’t exist in smaller shops. If you prefer something more traditional, the local market is the perfect place to go to get fresh fruit. This is a popular area due to its proximity to Alameda and Instituto Superior Técnico. Connected to the city’s metro grid, Olaias metro station has received several international awards for its beauty and colourful motifs.
It may sound strange, but the metro station is very different from what you are used to.
With the sense of friendliness and familiarity.
Neighbours know each other.
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.
