Principe Real

by barryg23

Principe Real is a nice square west of the Bairro Alto. Most street in the Bairro Alto are narrow and winding so there's a real sense of openness when you reach Prinicipe Real. There are nice houses on all sides of the square as well a relaxing park in the centre. Steps in the middle of the park lead down to the Museu da Agua Principe Real one of the least known museums in the cities.

Principe Real

Pricipe real or "Royal Prince" is a really beautifull part of town with great 19th century buildings recently restored. The gardens here are great , the botanical garden of Lisbon is here also. Really worth the visit.

hanging out at art nouveau cafes

by Drachentoeter

Get a large coffee with milk ("galhao") and spend some time in one of Lisbon's faboulous art nouveau cafes. I like the one at Rua D. Pedro V., close to the Principe Real public square.

Praça do Principe Real

by arlequin_g

Go up Rua Pedro Alcantara.. At the right side you’ll find S. Pedro Alcantara Belvedere. Once more a great view of the city. If you keep going up this street you’ll arrive at Praça Principe Real. It’s a good place to sit under the shade of the biggest Cypressus Lusitanica in Europe. A very quiet place. Some palaces you will see in this square (numbers 2-4, 20-22)
In Avenida Libertade you can take Da Gloria elevator if you don’t feel like walking up. It takes you right to S. Pedro Alcantara Belvedere.

Jardim do Principe Real

by SoulFisher

In Portugal the small urban parks, located usually in squares, are called jardins (gardens).
In one way the "jardins" of the city center might disappoint. The areas in the center are so overbuilt and the jardins are small.
However, one thing in my opinion make them interesting. They have trees that are centuries old and also exotic trees. Lisbon has a mild weather, therefore both some tropical plants and temperate plants may grow side to side. One can see in the gardens of the center, trees from China, South America, the Mediterranean world and northern Europe.
The Jardim do Principe Real is worth to pay a visit to its trees.

Gay Lisbon

by howboy

I'm a youthful 55, not much into discos though, and would like some tips of some bars, cafes, or restaurants I might like (I alsready have a hotel booked). Any other tips would be appreciated as well. I'll be visiting Lisbon in January 2007.

There is a very well known gay bar in Lisbon called the "Finalmente". I think it is close to Principe Real area. There used to be also a gay disco called "Trumps" but I don't know if it still exists.

Where to stay in Lisbon? - Help!

by numaan

HI can anyone recommend a nice clean friendly hostel or cheap hotel that is located right in the centre of town close to all the shopping and nightlife?

Guidebooks list so many but I do not know which is a good one to stay at. I want to be able to meet other travellers but equally stay somewhere with a good level of hygiene, cleanliness, nice beds and hot running water!

Can someone please recommend some good places close to all the main sights and sounds including the gay scene?

Thank you!

Gay clubs are in Bairro Alto / Principe Real, close to downtown. Actually, on the back side of Bairro Alto there is a gay friendly pension called Anjo Azul.

I do not know if they have web site, but you can go directly there for accomodation.

Living in Lisboa

by Hobbes007


I'll be moving to Lisboa mid-October, and I'm planning to live and work there until at least June 2004.

I'd like to know a bit more about the best areas to live (price, athmosphere). I'd be interested to rent a flat, not too big, not too far from the center, or otherwise share a flat or house with a few other people. Is it possible/affordable to find something? Also, where are the best places to start looking? (newspaper adds, internet, real estate agencies)



Re: Living in Lisboa


Hi Kris

The "in" areas in Lisbon would be Bairro Alto (old quater where design/fashion shops are located) toghther with Principe Real (neraby BAlto) and Campo de Ourique or Lapa. But the price may be high! Eur500 and up. Tha area of the Castle is also quite looked for by younger people. If you plan on walking or taking public transportation it´s fine, otherwise going aroubd to these areas by car can sometimes be complicated, especially if you don´t have a garage to park your car.
The center is easilly reacheble by subway /busfrom other poitns that maybe less expensive.
Newspaper are the best thing to look for apartments to rent. Try the site and look for arrendamentos (rents) and apartamentos. T0 and T1 are what you are looking for.
I suggest you pick a map from Lisboa to get acquainted with the names of the areas. It´ll be easier to go through the search.
Good luck!
Wish you luck with finding a job, too!
