The European capital of the moment

Almost 300 days of sunshine per year, a laid-back lifestyle always close to the river and the historic neighbourhoods, Lisbon has recently been ranked as a top European travel and investment destination . Nested between the charming neighbourhood of Lapa — one of the fanciest of Lisbon quarters — and the booming Cais do Sodré, Santos is the highlight of the city’s riverfront.



Santos Design District

Santos is one of the booming, upscale neighbourhoods of Lisbon. Famous for its lively nightlife, its hip restaurants and cafés, as well as its numerous design and architecture studios, museums and art galleries, Santos is the place to be in contemporary Lisbon. IADE Creative University and the proximity with the river are also key to Santos’ undeniable appeal.

Santos enjoys a central location in the capital — easy road connections to Lisbon’s main axis, served by train, tram, and bus, with a brand-new subway station soon to open. City centre is a short walk away and 20 minutes by car will take you to Lisbon’s International Airport.
