The district of Avenidas Novas is a fantastic option for those wishing to live near Lisbon’s historical center, while enjoying the modern facilities the area has to offer.
Notable neighborhoods in this upmarket district such as Saldanha and Picoas offer a variety of local shops and services, the area of Campo Pequeno is more residential with a quieter ambiance.
With a blend of both residential and business areas built around broad avenues, Avenidas Novas may not be filled with historic sights but offers a blend of modern and traditional architecture and is well equipped with modern amenities.
The ease of living, access to the historical center and Avenida da Liberdade, flat terrain, and great selections of shops, parks and restaurants make this a very desirable area to live.
One of my favourite restaurants in Avenidas Novas is Cacué, with its cozy and welcoming interior serving mouthwatering Portuguese dishes.
Same of my favorite places to visit when in Avenidas Novas are the Museu Calouse Gulbenkian – With its beautiful gardens and one of the most important private art collections in the world, and Parque Eduardo VII sitting right above Avenida da Liberdade with outstanding views over the city.
In the center of the area you have Praça Duque de Saldanha, with its unique location on a roundabout surrounded by buildings, shopping galleries and the always happening Quioque Saldanha where neighbours get together all times of
From older architecture to the most modern buildings, from studios that are perfect for young professionals to multilevel homes designed for large families, Avenidas Novas has something for everyone.
