A historic maritime city, welcoming modern explorers

Europe’s westernmost capital is probably also its most stunningly sited, on hilly ground in a bend of the River Tagus where it broadens out into a giant bay. Writers rave about Lisbon’s unique light; modern tourists also warm to the mild climate and relaxed feel of its summer nights, when the bars' patrons spill out onto cobbled streets. Centuries of maritime exploration have also left a rich artistic heritage.

It might be a little bit hard for some tourists, but this flea market is the best place to practise your skills in doing business and negotiating. Walk around and enjoy the diversity of goods that are offered. Here you can find all kinds of second hand stuff. From retro albums to fashionable shoes and from handmade necklaces to a fifties couch. Search and you will find.

Stay Editor's Note

Feira da Ladra or “Thieve’s Market” is a famous flea market with a large proportion of junk, often at inflated prices. Haggling is a must. Pitches are mostly laid out on the ground, with more permanent shops around the perimeter where you can pick up decent semi-antique furniture.

The market is held every Tuesday and Saturday, from dawn to dusk. Feira da Ladra starts at the Arco de São Vicente, an arch near where the famous Tram 28 stops.
