Príncipe Real

Quaint neighborhood

Lisbon’s trendiest district, with a thriving restaurant & bar scene, is an excellent choice for those looking to reside in a quaint part of town.

In the neighbourhood’s lush central garden, Jardim do Príncipe Real, you’ll find one of the finest examples of Lisbon’s breezy kiosk cafés, where locals sit to sip bica (espresso) or cold, citrusy white port and tonics, play chess and gossip.

Treasure Trove

One of its iconic buildings, Embaixada, a boutique shopping arcade in a former neo-Arab palace with a dramatic domed roof, is a treasure trove of local & international independent designers
