Belém

The location of Belém, perched on the water’s edge, has earned this neighborhood its notability. The area is popular and voguish. Many thousands swarm this Lisbon neighborhood throughout the year. Tourists take photos of the beautiful Mosteiro dos Jerónimos or admire the displays at the National Coach Museum.

Despite the neighborhood being a tourist hotspot, Belém administers charm in high doses, if you know where to look. The area is dense with green areas and parks. It's also relatively popular with expats. You could build a pleasant life in Belém, provided that you can afford the district's higher property prices. Note: this neighborhood does not have access to the metro.

Reviews

I live in Belem and I love it. I have previously lived in Avenidas Novas (Av. Berna) and Areeiro (Av. Roma) and I must say I prefer it over here (near some of the most beautiful places/monuments of the city and near the Pasteis de Belem). I didn't like the noise of Av Berna and the area near Av. Roma was nice but the flat was not so great and quite pricy. On the negative side, here you are a bit far from the center, so it may take a bit longer to get there (I go by tram). Also, food-wise I think this is the "worse" area of Lisbon (excluding the pasteis). Even more sad, Benfica stadium is super far! On the positive side you have the riverside, pasteis de belem, the monuments and the bridge. - Ines, December 2020

A short walk to the river. Easy access to downtown by train, bus or tram. The touristic area next to the Jerónimos Monastery can get very crowded on weekends and holidays, but the rest of Belém is very quiet. The parks are also great! - Simone, August 2021
