The new cool neighborhood
Intendente is a recently revitalized neighbourhood, which has brought new residents, becoming more and more a dynamic and multifaceted place in the heart of Lisbon.
Its central location - next to the neighbourhoods of Anjos and Mouraria and just a 10 minutes walk from the centre of Baixa - offers excellent connections to public transport, a hipster and multicultural atmosphere and many small restaurants, bars and cafés, which have a synergistic effect making Intendente one of the most fashionable and intriguing neighbourhoods in Lisbon.
The days of bad reputation and insecurity linked to the neighbourhood are part of the past thanks to the rehabilitation of a series of dilapidated buildings, such as old warehouses and factories that have been transformed into co-working spaces, galleries, ateliers or residential developments, preserving the best of the old and presenting the best of the modern.
The famous Largo do Intendente, a square with more traditional commerce and a lot of cultural activity, has also been rehabilitated, containing even an installation by the Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos. The shop "A Vida Portuguesa" - the most beautiful shop in Portugal according to Time Out magazine - occupies, for example, an old ceramic factory in the middle of the square.
