Santa Maria Maior

Narrow cobbled paths, clean washing draped from windows, and angular sunlight squeezing through the streets. Santa Maria Maior is a charming neighborhood and provides many with a traditional impression of Lisbon living. This appeal has drawn mass tourism to the area, with Airbnb’s monopolizing the area.

House pieces have risen exponentially in Santa Maria Maior. But the experience of living in this cultural hotspot continues to draw expats and digital nomads alike. Unlike many neighbourhoods of Lisbon, you’ll have access to a ferry, which takes passengers from Terreiro do Paço to Barreiro.
