Shopping in Lisbon



Shopping is without a doubt one of the major tourist trumps of Lisbon. Lisbon is, in fact, a top-notch shopping site in Portugal, putting forward plenty of opportunities not to be missed out by fashion victims and souvenir seekers alike, since, indeed, Lisbon is replete with both mainstream shopping centers and traditional shops tailored to suit the shopping tastes of a vast range of clients.

The best of the fashion trade can be sampled along Avenida da Liberdade, a thoroughfare lined with first-hand international brand stores. The Baixa district is ideal for visitors who intend to explore the peaks of the traditional shopping in Lisbon, whereas the Chiado district bristles with design shops and bookstores. Design shops can also be spotted in the Santos district, and if strolling around in Bairro Alto, visitors have the opportunity to study the most diverse range of shops and stores, though there is a clear prominence of stores selling clothes and accessories.

Lisbon is also home to several picturesque markets and flea markets which should definitely be searched out if not for the sake of shopping, then at least by title of a sightseeing tour.

Feira da Ladra surprises, first of all, by the apparent lack of organization (sellers come here and display their products on improvised stalls or even on blankets simply stretched on the sidewalk) and by the diversity of the showcased products: coin and old CD collections, stamps, clothes, books, folk art products, furniture, antiques and so on.

Recently, the market has taken on the air of a tourist oriented venue.
