Where to shop in Lisbon
Lisbon is very much a shoppers’ paradise, with an outlet to suit every fashion and style. Essential things to do on your retail therapy excursion include a trip to renovated industrial complex LX factory, a shopping city within the city. This uber-trendy venue hosts an eclectic selection of places to eat, drink, dance and spend some serious Euros.
Find unique pieces for your home at KARE Design (Edifício I), treat yourself to some natural skincare at Organii (Edifício H), and inspect the volumes at possibly the world’s most cutting-edge bookstore, Ler Devagar (Edifício G).
For fans of browsing, a walk down nearby Rua de São Bento (no website) won’t disappoint – it’s antique and bric-à-brac heaven. The twice-weekly Feira da Ladra (no website) flea market in Alfama is another haggler’s dream (Tuesdays and Saturdays).
For statement fashion, get your feet clad in wood by Xuz, the brand pioneering Portugal’s clog revival (available at Gardénia, Rua Garrett 54, Chiado). For traditional Iberian handiwork, the leather bags by Manjerica are exceptional. You’ll find them at ComCor (Rua Alexandre Herculano 11). Or try Pelcor for items made from a more unusual material, cork – Madonna and Barack Obama have both had items made by this trendsetting label.
Foodies can take home some edible souvenirs at Conserveira de Lisboa, where you’ll find the country’s most delicious sea creatures tinned and ready to take home – from sardines with spicy olive oil to cans of succulent tuna belly.
