Shopping in Lisbon

A great way to get to know a city and its people is through their shops and local produce. Lisbon is a small city and its districts are very close together yet differ dramatically. The Baixa, or downtown, is where you'll find the traditional age-old stores. The names of the district denote the old trades which used to be conducted there: Rua dos Bacalhoeiros (Bacalhau St.), Rua dos Fanqueiros (Draper’s St.), Rua do Ouro (Gold St.), Rua da Prata (Silver St.) and Rua dos Correeiros (Saddler’s St.). International stores are clustered along the Avenida da Liberdade.

Up in the Chiado is where you'll find the big brands, design boutiques, art galleries and department stores. Antique shops are concentrated along Rua do Alecrim in the Chiado and the Rua Dom Pedro V in the Bairro Alto. Independent stores and more artisan stores can be found close by in the Príncipe Real district. Lisbon has a strong market tradition and they pop up on a regular basis throughout the city. You can also find some great modern shopping malls.

LX Factory

LX Factory

LX FACTORY

The LX Factory is one of Lisbon's coolest haunts. It's overflowing with trendy restaurants, bars, boutique shops and urban art. Old disused industrial spaces have found new life in the shadow of the Ponte de 25 Abril Bridge. Back in the ninteenth century the area was the most important weaving and textile companies (Companhia de Fiação e Tecidos Lisbonense) that dominated the Alcântara district. Following closure in the 1980's the area became a derelect wasteland until 2008 when new investiment transformed it into creative hub.

Today the LX Factory has a village-like feel and home to Lisbon's most creative minds. Weekends and evenings the area fills up with the in-crowd who like to hang-out in the eateries and cobbled streets. Sundays are a great day to visit and walk off your hangover exploring the weekly flea market.
