Best Shopping in Lisbon

By Verdict Staff

FASHION CLINIC

While Lisbon is famously known as Europe’s least expensive capital city, the elite traveler will still find all the luxury, glamour and designer names available in Paris or Milan.

For more upmarket brands and boutiques head west to the Chiado district and its Avenida da Liberdade. Strolling along this mile-long, tree-shaded avenue of mansions, fountains and cafés you will find many luxury designer stores. For alternative boutiques and traditional Portuguese products the winding streets of Bairro Alto are a delight and often stay open late.

FASHION CLINIC

FASHION CLINIC

This grand cathedral to luxury fashion is located directly on Lisbon’s chicest avenue and holds a truly huge range of world-renowned designer labels, including Dolce & Gabbana, Burberry Prorsum and Prada.

Fashion Clinic holds a magnificent range of products for both men and women, from shoes and accessories, books and music to jewelry and perfumes. The store’s overall concept changes twice a year to ensure that what’s on sale is always in season and the most up-to-date fashion. With so much luxury fashion under one roof you’ll barely need to shop anywhere else in Lisbon.

A VIDA PORTUGUESA – LOJA CHIADO

A VIDA PORTUGUESA

One of Lisbon’s most original shops, A Vida Portuguesa, meaning ‘the Portuguese life’ specialises in traditional Portuguese products that retain their original packaging, along with a flavor of old Lisbon.

The brainchild of a journalist who fell in love with traditional Portuguese produce, the store offers local craft products that have a huge following. Found in a former perfume warehouse Avida Portuguesa’s products range from tea and biscuits to jewelry and ceramics. Past customers have included singer PJ Harvey, actors Susan Sarandon and Sam Riley and architect Peter Cook.
