Known as one of Lisbon's trendiest neighborhoods, Principe Real is not only fashionable but one of the city's chicest places. Located north of Bairro Alto, it is full of new restaurants and stylish boutiques. Principe Real is also, above all, one of the most popular residential areas Lisbon natives and new residents who come from abroad. A quiet area, rich in palaces, museums, antique shops and green spaces including the wonderful Botanical Garden, Jardim Botânico da Faculdade de Ciências. The atmosphere is a lovely mix of high-end and bobo-chic—and we love it!
In every city, there is a so-called "bourgeois" neighborhood, and in Lisbon, it’s Chiado. One of the capital's most iconic and elegant districts with its beautiful 17th-century buildings. The atmosphere is romantic, a result of its many theatres, old literary cafes and charming bookstores found on random streets. The Chiado neighborhood was partly destroyed by a fie in 1988, but fortunately, very talented architects have rebuilt and restored historic buildings. Chiado is shopping mecca, with many cultural offerings, such as the Chiado Museum and the National Museum of Contemporary Art (MNAC). And don’t miss beautiful strolls along the Rua Garret, the Rua Camo, and the Praça Luis de Cames.
