The name of the neighborhood
comes from a street that goes by the name of São Bento, a street that
is particularly narrow and that goes from São Bento Palace (Assembly of
the Republic) to Largo do Rato. The street of São Bento is also a point
of connection between other neighborhoods like, Santos, Estrela and
Amoreiras. This neighborhood is known nationally for the political life
that it presents, also very much through the Assembly of the Republic
that is present in this same district.
São Bento has some
gardens around it such as Praça das Flores and Jardim de São Bento, as
well as a variety of restaurants, cafes, and decoration stores to
satisfy all kinds of personalities that remain or that will eventually
be in this cozy neighborhood.
