Avenidas Novas

Avenidas Novas is a parish in the municipality of Lisbon, located in the center of the capital, with 2.99 km² of area and 21 625 inhabitants.

It was created within the scope of the administrative reorganization of Lisbon in 2012, and resulted from the aggregation of the old parishes of Nossa Senhora de Fátima and São Sebastião da Pedreira, as well as a small portion of the parish of Campolide.

Avenidas Novas was born next to Avenida da Liberdade, and grew north around the axis of Avenida da República, in the late 19th century and the first half of the 20th century.

The broader territory with less demographic density facilitated urban geometry and new and spacious avenues were born there, whose name was associated with important figures of the Liberal Revolution of 1820: Saldanha, Fontes Pereira de Melo, etc.

New neighborhoods were born here, with single-family houses and luxurious mansions, occupied by an expanding middle, upper-middle and upper class at the time. Of these palaces, there are still a few, overshadowed by buildings of 7 and 8 floors high, built during the Estado Novo, as well as modern and tall buildings, occupied mainly by companies, in what is today the business center of Lisbon.

Avenidas Novas are very busy during the day and at night attract visitors to the many restaurants, which have increased in number in recent years, thanks to the ongoing urban requalification. Here you will find an active trade, leisure and cultural areas, restaurants and cozy cafés.

Points of interest:

  • Several shopping centers, such as: Monumental , Saldanha Residence , Atrium Saldanha , Campo Pequeno Shopping Center , El Corte Inglés , etc.
  • The Blue Quarter , a very characteristic residential area and where the Palace of Justice is located (where the Court and the Attorney General's Office of Civil Courts and Courts of Lisbon are located):
  • The Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation , a center of culture, with its temporary exhibitions, the Gulbenkian Orchestra, simply stroll in its Garden.
