After looking for gifts in countless souvenir shops in Lisbon, we luckily stumbled across A Vida Portuguesa and were all able to find great presents for our friends and family. Recommend stopping by if you're looking for something nice to bring home from Lisbon!

Beautiful stores selling Portuguese-made items: from blankets to soaps to olive oils. I was focused on their blankets and small rugs. Prices were reasonable compared to other stores. Gracious salespeople to assist you. They have 4 locations. Definitely a must visit!

You can buy things actually made in Lisbon and NOT China here. We bought things made of cork, pretty cans of seafood and other stuff. They have three locations in Lisbon but this one I think is the best.

Chiado & Carmo
The traditionally trendy "Chiado" (literally,
"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

Yes. Most shops are open on Sundays in Lisbon, not just in the malls but also in the center of town.
