Estrella is known for its diverse mix of residents ranging from the classic and traditional, to the young and modern. Its rich heritage and well-structured buildings, paired with its brilliant colors provide an impressive, yet cozy environment.
Estrella’s central location makes it a very desirable neighborhood with Campo de Ourique to the north, Lapa and Santos to the south, and Principe Real and Sao bento to the east.
Here you will find a number of embassies located in the well-preserved neoclassical buildings within this historic neighbourhood.
These buildings were originally a group of royal residences. As you step in, you will be amazed by the beautiful blend of pastel-colored buildings, tiled facades, and impressive views of the Tagus river.
Estrela boasts an unique selection of spacious family homes and modern apartments, surrounded by art galleries and design studios, antique shops, and quaint local businesses, making this neighborhood perfect for establishing a home.
This neighborhood features old-style cafés and bakeries, as well as renowned modern restaurants, Including my favorites Da Noi, Kefi Greek Bistro, and Senhor Uva.
I also love visiting Mid mod, an interior design studio that doubles as a mid-century furniture dealer with an assortment of furniture, decorative objects, and lighting.
Estrela is a very charming place that has caught the attention of many potential residents, especially families, as it offers a more quiet, tranquil environment than the neighboring areas of Sao bento and Principe Real. Moreover, a variety of good private schools are located nearby.
The Basilica da Estela, which is among the most elegant churches in Lisbon, can be seen from anywhere around.
One of the most important public gardens is the Jardim Da Estrela, designed in the style of an English garden to provide families with a beautiful and relaxed space to unwind and spend time together.
Situated across the Basilica da Estrela, this well-maintained park boasts many exotic plants, water features, cafes, and plenty of shade from the hot Portuguese sun. After a long day, it is the perfect spot to enjoy a glass of wine as the sun goes down.
