Shopping in Lisbon


Like food and nightlife, the shopping scene in Lisbon is wide and varied, where everyone can find a place to buy items that would cater to their personal style. From flea markets that sell bohemian trinkets of all sizes, to the luxury brands found at the Chiado district, and vintage shops where you could see amazing Portuguese items, you’ll never run out of places to shop around Lisbon.

The main shopping areas in Lisbon include Chiado, Principe Real, Avenida Da Liberdade, Baixa, and Barrio Alto. Several shopping malls are scattered around town, some as big as Colombo and others as small as Armazéns do Chiado. Lisbon also has the Feira da Ladra near National Pantheon, and a market for fresh produce at Mercado da Ribeira.

If you’re always looking for the trendiest styles, checkout Lisbon’s Modalisbo, the city’s independent fashion week that takes place twice a year and showcases some of the best works from Lisbon-based designers.

Lisbon has a lot of items to be proud of. Since one of Portugal’s main industries is footwear, you can check out many high-quality footwear that can beat Italy’s footwear standards. Other souvenir-worthy items that have a distinct Lisbon vibe include luxurious soaps, cork-made products, wool accessories, and gourmet delicacies (such as canned sardines, oils, cheeses, custard tarts, chocolates, and more).

Historical Alfama & Scenic Viewpoints Tour

A tour with Bruno is like spending an afternoon with a good friend in his hometown.

Bruno adapted the tour to all our wishes and showed us so much more about Lisbon than we would have seen without him. We were almost overwhelmed from his knowledge of this beautiful city, there was no question that Bruno could not answer.

But especially Bruno's open character, his apparent love for his city and his friendly and courteous/obliging way of dealing with people made the tour so special for us. He did not only show us Lisbon, but we were able to develop a feeling for the city in a very short time.

If you really want to get to know Lisbon, we really recommend a tour with Bruno.

Lisbon's Favorite Food Tour: the 10 Tastings

Best of Lisbon Tour: Highlights & Hidden Gems

We met Isabel shortly after arriving with an overnight flight to Lisbon. Figuring the public transport and the street names took longer than I thought, so we were a bit late. Isabel gave us a call and patiently directed us to the meeting place. Isabel appeared to be a well prepared guide passionate about Lisbon and its history. She is also an affluent English speaker and pleasant to communicate with. It’s hard to cover a lot with just 3+ hours we walked the streets, but Isabel gave us some memorable historic details and quite a few good ideas to further exploration of this great town.

Top 5 Souvenir Items from Lisbon

  • Soaps – Fragrances have been popular since the 1800s, but have boomed significantly in recent years when Oprah Winfrey revealed Portuguese soaps are one of her favorite things. Notable soap shops in Lisbon are A Vida Portuguesa and Artes.
  • Tinned Fish – Known for its vintage packaging, tinned fish is found all over Lisbon, but you can never go wrong with any of the hundreds of varieties at Conserveira de Lisboa.
  • Cork products – Portugal produces most of the world’s cork, so expect a ton of cork-infused items like bags, shoes, furniture, clothes, and other trinkets. Special shops you should check out are Cork & Co. and Pelcor.
  • Gold –Aside from its churches, Lisbon is known for gold jewelry with up to 19.2 karats. Check out the jewelry stores lined in the Chiadro district.
  • Shoes – As the second-best source of finest shoes, right after Italy, Lisbon is home to many high-quality footwear. Some stores to visit include Foreva, Cubanas, Sapataria do Carmo and Luís Onofre.
