Lisbon's highest point
Penha de França is located in one of the seven hills of Lisbon. It is thus one of the highest points of the city landscape, having a magnificent view over the whole city.
Dominated by the Church of Penha de França, the neighbourhood resembles in lifestyle the neighbourhood of Graça and in typology the neighbourhood of Anjos. Mostly a residential district, benefiting from good commerce and good access to the city centre, here life is quiet and of a great tradition.
Like other marginal areas of the city, once considered peripheral, this area still maintains many manor houses inhabited by the past nobility and is an example of the various districts of Lisbon unjustifiably underestimated ending up being neglected. However, the neighbourhood has been requalified, especially the viewpoint and public spaces.
Perhaps this is why Penha de França represents one of those few neighbourhoods that offers properties at reasonable prices and good quality of life for middle and upper-middle-class families.
