Baixa Shopping Walk (Self Guided), Lisbon

The downtown district of most cities in the world is the best place to head for to get into the hub of city life and do some great shopping. Downtown Lisbon – known as Baixa – is no exception to this rule. Perhaps the only difference is that you will find yourself in a district that boasts stunning Neo-classical buildings and a high concentration of pedestrian streets with large sidewalks, so you can browse at your leisure. Even the shops are amazing with their beautifully restored Art-Deco fronts. The numerous cafes, restaurants and bars are also richly decorated. It is no wonder that UNESCO is considering adding this area to the World Heritage Site list!

Shopping in this neighborhood is simply a delight and you will have no trouble in finding the perfect gift for a loved one, a unique piece of jewelry or a locally made item to show off to your friends. For something really special at an affordable price, visit Rua de Prata where master silversmiths ply their trade and sell their newly finished goods straight from their workshops. Take the time just to stroll through the district, drinking in its unique charm, have a coffee or a meal in a sidewalk café and get the feel of the distinctive atmosphere of this delightful area.
