We were nearby leaving a restaurant, and saw a huge line of people lined up for port. There is some really cool history behind this place that I cannot remember, but the port was out of this world. Nowhere to sit or anything, just a counter with hundreds of bottles of their port..a nice stop for after dinner for some... More

Reminded me of taking cold medicine, but still worth going by to drink a traditional drink. It was and fun and cheap was to feel like a local for a few minutes

Everyone visiting Lisbon would have been told to try the Ginja or sweet cherry/berry wine. This is served as dessert wine in restaurants, or simply drunk at bars but here in front of the Igreja Sao Domingos (St Domingos) church is the first stand alone Ginja bar or shop I have come across. It is practically a "hole in the... More

It would be a sin not to try the sour cherry liquor, ginjinha, while in Lisbon, and this is the perfect place to do it. Right off of Rossio, this little hole in the wall serves up shots of ginjinha (for just €1.40) which you can enjoy outside on the street and then return your glass. I loved that there... More

A sort of hole in the wall serving the traditional Ginjinha at 1.40 euros. Something to try once if you are in Lisbon.

Delitious Ginjinha is a liquer with the fruit called Ginja, something like wild cherry. You can taste a glass of it for 1,40€ in this bar.

Small place and historical place where you can find turists and locals making a line to take their traditional shot of Ginjinha. The ruby coloured liquor, accompanied with some cherries is like an elixir for good health, and as written in a poster in the entrance, you can see the difference between a sad, tisic man and one that drinks...

Staying in Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores

Neighbourhood Profile
Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
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 Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
