Lisbon’s Baixa (downtown) area is one of the city’s busiest city hubs with shops, hotels, restaurants, café-bars and several attractions. The neighborhood goes from the Tagus River up until Avenida da Liberdade and sits right between the two hills of Alfama and Chiado. Considered the heart of Lisbon, this district was devastated by the 1755 earthquake and then rebuilt by Marquis of Pombal, the Secretary of the State of Internal Affairs of the Kingdom (the equivalent of a Prime Minister today) in the government of Joseph I of Portugal. Exactly because it’s an imperative stopping place if you are visiting Lisbon, we’ve selected the best restaurants in Baixa.
