Get your legs ready to climb the alleyways towards São Jorge Castle. All the effort is rewarded by the best view in the city, and we're not making this up. The Moorish fortress, with over ten towers and an archaeological museum, boasts one of the most incredible views in Lisbon, as well as a programme of free music and theatre.
Here you can find everything you need, from decorative objects to books, second-hand clothes, furniture, or even glasses. Feira da Ladra is a Lisbon classic that never goes out of fashion and still has some low price finds.
