The neighborhood of Alvalade is predominantly residential, with access to the metro. This grants you access to multiple areas of Lisbon via the green and yellow lines. Cowork spaces can be found in the area but the neighborhood does not offer much in the way of expat communities.
The above-average property prices here might make other nearby neighborhoods more appealing. Alvalade offers an adequate number of parks, local markets, swimming pools, and hospitals too. Alvalade has remained relatively anonymous on Lisbon’s tourist trail.
