The parish owes its name to a chapel in honour of Nossa Senhora da Penha de França, founded in 1598 on the site where the Church of Nossa Senhora da Penha de França now stands.
Its current area, which stretches from the River Tagus to the Penha de França hill, has been populated for many hundreds of years with settlements along the riverside area, around the Madre de Deus and Santos-o-Novo convents, and around the Penha de França hermitage and later the convent of the same name.
Apart from these small centres, the area was basically rural until the late 19th and early 20th centuries, situated on the outskirts of Lisbon and was home to open fields, vegetable gardens farms, summer manor houses and monasteries.
The area offers leisure areas (Jardim da Alameda and Fonte Luminosa), the Arroios Market, schools (Escola Básica Actor Vale, Escola Artística António Arroio and Instituto Superior Técnico) as well as a number of shops, restaurants, services and public transport.
Easy access to Lisbon airport and 30 minutes from the Cascais beaches.
