Alvalade (Portuguese pronunciation: [aɫvɐˈladɨ]) is a Portuguese freguesia ("civil parish"), located in the municipality of Lisbon. The population in 2011 was 31,813,[1] in an area of 5.34 km².[2]

With the 2012 Administrative Reform, the former Campo Grande and São João de Brito parishes merged with the Alvalade parish and the new and larger one kept the latter's name.[3]
