Anjos has been laying low on the tourist radar for most of history. It’s almost a black-spot on the Lisbon map, as a result, little wealth has flowed into the neighbourhood. Anjos is considered one of Lisbon’s least attractive neighbourhoods. On account of this, both elderly people and young families have managed to secure affordable living within a very central Lisbon location.
This low cost-of-living is certain to influence the future of Anjos and bring wealth to the area in the coming years. Busses pass through Anjos regularly, and the neighbourhood even has its very own metro line!
I live in Anjos and love it but it is definitely a little more local and less visitor focused if that makes sense. Everyone is super kind but there is more constantly going on for visitors elsewhere. - Sarah, April 2022
I’m living in Arroios for a month now and absolutely loving it. Very close to parks, supermarkets, gyms, shops and bars/restaurants. Close to the metro and a 20min walk from the city center. I’m paying low rent and next to cheap supermarkets while bordering the more expensive neighborhood with nice parks and restaurants. But as it’s the only neighborhood here I’ve lived in I have nothing to compare it with 😆 - Cédric, December 2020
