Lisbon Shopping

From: Lisbon, Portugal travel guide

General Shopping Information

I'm not a shopper, but even I find it hard to resist the azulejo tiles and handpainted dishes of Portugal. I also have a prized collection of records and CDs from Portugal, including albums from Madredeus and Mísia. And I wouldn't dream of leaving Lisbon without a kilo or two of Portuguese coffee.
