The most traditional neighbourhoods are Baixa, Chaido, Bairro Alto, Alfama and Belém. Each one of these districts has its own unique vitality and essence.
In addition to these traditional areas, there are two very modern areas of Lisbon. The first is called Marquess of Pombal Square (Praça do Marquês de Pombal) and its surroundings. The second is the area around the Park of the Nations (Parque das Nações), which was constructed for the 1998 Lisbon World Exposition.
