São Bento Travel Guide

São Bento

Downhill to the west of Bairro Alto is the São Bento neighborhood, dominated by the former monastery—now the Assembly of the Republic, Portugal's parliament—from which it takes its name. The long Rua de São Bento is home to several interesting antiques shops; other local streets are dotted with tiny cafés and restaurants, many of them run by long-established immigrants from former Portuguese colonies in Africa.
