Alcântara is a waterfront neighbourhood located between Ajuda, Belém and Santos, an area known for its unwavering connection to the Tagus River and the sights that come with this privilege.
Stretching between the Monsanto Forest Park and the riverside promenade, Alcântara is home to modern cafés and restaurants, renowned museums and art galleries, and creative attractions like LX Factory, an old factory complex, and Village Underground Lisboa, a cultural hub and co-working space identifiable by shipping containers sitting on top of each other. The Alcântara docks embracing the river, together with the Doca de Santo Amaro, draw weekend and evening crowds to its many restaurants and bars inside former warehouses. The industrial look & feel of Alcântara blends perfectly with the contemporary atmosphere, and many monuments and first-rate attractions in the city are easily accessible from here thanks to the wide-reaching transport network. Cascais and coastline beaches are also just a short train ride away.
