To the west of Lisbon, on the outskirts of the city lies the neighborhood of Benfica. Perhaps you recognize the name on account of the success of this district’s football team, S.L Benfica. The neighborhood is not central but does provide the ‘local’ experience that some prefer. In Benfica, away from the hustle and bustle, you’ll find plenty of green areas. Here, you can while away the hours on a sunny Lisbon afternoon. Simply hop on the metro to navigate your way through the neighborhood. Bus routes and trains in this area are not quite so impressive as other districts in this western region.
