Great souvenirs and presents, all reasonably priced. They have everything from handmade kitchenware and soaps/lotions, to local olive oil, port, wines, and beer. They also take care to wrap everything so that it will make the flight back home intact.

"squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers
plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can
stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its
streets, shops, art galleries, theaters, museums and
viewpoints. It's also the home to the statue of the
famous statue of portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa,
having is usual espresso at "A Brasileira" as he used
