Lisbon Shopping

From: Lisbon, Portugal travel guide


ABOVE: The Elevador de Santa Justa (far end of street) lifts tourists and locals from the Baixa to the Bairro Alto shopping district. It opened for business in 1901.

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 M�sia. And I wouldn't dream of leaving Lisbon without a kilo or two of Portuguese coffee.

For advice about shopping from people who shop, see the links below.
