Feria da Ladra

Feria da Ladra is a major flea market in Lisbon that boasts an eclectic mix of housewares, clothing, antiques, books, military objects and furniture. It is believed that a market of this type has been held at this spot since the 12th century!


A lot of the shopping in Lisbon is now housed in enormous shopping centres such as Colombo and Amoreiras, or in smaller gallerias. The city’s old centre, Baixa, retains its identity as a traditional shopping district, where you walk on the streets (some of them traffic-free) and drop into the shops. Go in for cork designs, gourmet food, crafts, soaps, shoes and if your wallet allows, gold. Chiado is close to Baixa, and has the reputation of being the city’s finest shopping district. Chiado successfully manages to combine the gallery model with open shopping, combining the best of both worlds.
