Mandatory to try the tipical portuguesse Ginjinha in the famous square Rossio. It is a small place where you can have this liquor made with cherries and taste it on the street. The Price (2017) is 1,50 EUR.

This is right in a tourist square. It's sticky with the sweet drink. Enjoy and take a bottle home as a souvenir :) It's in expensive and nothing I've experienced outside of Portugal!

Very tasty! Started and ended our evening with one of these. The place is essentially a doorway, so you have to drink it outside but soak up the culture and enjoy a shot of this cherry liqueur!.

A local thing to do and a drink from Lisbon, we wanted to try it out. Line moved by quickly and had a shot. I'm not a fan of cherries though so I did not like too much.

While in Lisbon, one must visit La Ginjinha! It is just off ROSSIO Square and easy to find. The ginja is very tasty and economical. You can have a glass with or without the cherries. We had to stop there each day we were in...More

Sunny Saturday, long walks around the city center and then a relaxing Ginjinha with cherries, you don't need more.

A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site,
Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply
"Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake
construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755
earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its
name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in
