Pena is a nice neighborhood in the heart of Lisbon. It combines the typical old Lisbon with a beautiful green area, making it a great place to live. Nearby you have the Avenida da Liberdade. Even though it’s Lisbon’s most expensive shopping avenue, it’s a great place for a walk, enjoying one of the most beautiful spaces in Lisbon. From Pena you can get anywhere in the city in a matter of minutes. You can take plenty of buses, the subway, and even the trains Rossio, all of them very close. It’s a busy neighbourhood during the day, because it’s near the city centre. The locals are mostly older people who have lived here for a long time. If you want to spend the night out, you’re a 15 minute-walk away from places like Praça da Alegria, Principe Real and for 20 minutes away from the infamous Bairro Alto (street party capital of the world).
The locals are a mix of older people who have been living in this area forever with students and young professionals.
Campo Mártires da Pátria square, with its cool gardens and great ice cream spots!
The view from the Torel gardens. This hidden gem is one of the most beautiful gardens and viewpoints of the city! Really incredible view.
During the day, it’s dynamic. During the night it becomes a quiet place so that you can have a peaceful sleep.
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.
