One of the most famous neighbourhoods in Lisbon is Graça, located at the highest of the seven hills, which belongs to the São Vicente parish. The whole of São Vicente comprises both iconic and historic venues such as monuments, parks and viewpoints, neighbourhoods and restaurants.
Graça is connected with the historic Castelo neighbourhood, centred on Castelo São Jorge, that dominates that side of Lisbon’s skyline. Inside the castle walls, there are small streets filled with residential apartments, souvenir shops and a few restaurants, and of course the castle itself. Outside the walls, it spills into Graça, a newly lively neighbourhood that retains its historic charm even as parts are gentrifying. Here, you can feel a genuine Lisbon atmosphere and witness a truly cosmopolitan environment.
Graça is a neighbourhood that has the traditional aspects of Lisbon and is the perfect representation of how affordable a dream can be living in Portugal.

Graça is one of the oldest neighbours in Lisbon, keeping its urbanisation in the same way it was since medieval times. Its narrow streets comes from a time when cars did not exist yet, making the acessibility to some of the areas of Graça impossible for public transportation. But everything you will need to survive, you can find very close to you. The neighbourhood has plenty of markets, restaurants, public gardens, and viewpoints that will take your breath away.
Located mostly on the top of Graça Hill, the neighbourhood is one of the most visited in Lisbon, attracting tourists all year due to the amazing views of the city. The most famous is Graça´s Viewpoint, where you can drink a nice coffee and appreciate the beauty of Lisbon from above.
