Location: Lisbon – in the Alfama and Bairro Alto districts
Reason why: Surprises are waiting behind every corner of these old, characteristic districts.

Mood: Stroll through the narrow alleyways and daydream away at one of the many miradouros (viewpoints) atop the seven hills in the city.

Styling: Loose pants and gauzy dresses in jeans colours, paired with soft, antique pink and cobalt blue, prints, and… pom-poms! 

 

Five hidden gems in Lisbon

From that well-hidden shop to an amazing sampling of street art: you’ll have the time of your life exploring the capital of Portugal without a map.

  • Ponto Final: A cosy little restaurant in the Almada district across from the Taag and away from all the hustle and bustle. You’ve definitely got to try the local seafood.
  • A Tasca do Chico: A small, authentic Fado café with tapas and live performances. Make a reservation if you want to be sure to get a seat.
  • The Giant Bee: Eco-critical street art made from trash. This enormous bee lives at the LX Factory, a trendy design centre in the old factory complex outside the city centre.
  • Livraria Bertrand: The oldest bookstore in the world, established in 1732. This historic site is easy to recognise, thanks to the many azulejo tiles decorating the facade.
  • Manteigaria: A former butter shop, where you can now get the very best pastei de nata in Lisbon. This typical Portuguese pastry is prepared right in front of you and served warm.
