Welcome to Penha de França

Lisbon, Portugal

Popular among Erasmus students and people from every corner of the world, Penha de França is a melting pot of cultures. Here, you'll be able to experience a true global experience, thanks to all of the shops and restaurants its diverse community provide Penha de França with. Located on one of Lisbon's many hills, the neighbourhood has several miradouros you can admire the city's views from... and if you're lucky, you can even see them from your flat!

Despite it being a multicultural neighbourhood, Penha de França is perfect for students who want to discover the Portuguese culture. The area is always teeming with people, especially on its main retail street (Rua Morais Soares). Most buildings are quite old, so don't expect to see much modern architecture around you.

The area is located quite close to the city centre – you can walk there, take a bus, or hop on the metro at the Arroios, Anjos or Intendente stations. If you study at IST, you can easily walk to classes. As there are several public transport options, getting to other university hubs is also easy.
