Penha de França is a Portuguese parish (freguesia) in the municipality of Lisbon. It was created on April 13, 1918. In 1959 its area was reduced in order to create the parishes of Alto do Pina and São João. With the 2012 Administrative Reform, the latter merged with Penha de França and the new and larger parish kept its name.[1]
