Picoas is a neighbourhood in the city’s new centre, right between Marquês de Pombal and Saldanha, which are great central spots. It mixes cosmopolitan elements such as an Art Nouveau Metro station, a main avenue that is amazing for street art, the Sheraton hotel that until the end of last century was Portugal’s tallest building or a Portuguese monument such as Sotto Mayor Palace. It is located in a part of the city called Avenidas Novas which stands for “New Avenues”. If you want to live in the city centre with a closer access to historical sites whilst living in a much more modern area this is the right neighbourhood! To get around the city on a daily basis or to catch up with some sightseeing you just need to catch the subway or take the bus to any of the many fantastic sites Lisbon has to offer. If you are in the mood for taking a walk you can quickly get to Park Eduardo VII and enjoy its garden as well.
Everything just keeps rolling during the day but after nightfall the mood settles. Most of the locals stay at home and get their rest to get ready for the next day.
Picoas Plaza is a sheltered courtyard with a great outdoor environment. It is very calm and great to study or chill out. Just taking the time at the end of the day to get away from the urban fuss!
Life in the heart of the city. Living here is living close to every important site in the new part of the city. Centrality is key if you don’t want to miss out.
Everyone here is always in motion. Whether by car or by foot, everyone keeps moving around immersed in the city’s buzz.
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.
