This area comes alive on friday and saturday nights! Narrow streets filled with bars, amazingly large number of people, very international and not expensive at all. If you are in Lisbon, this place is definitely worth a visit. I like to call it the "fun district".

There's always something to do in Bairro Alto, and after two months in Lisbon I never got bored of it. By day, poke around bizarre antique shops full of everything you never knew you needed.

It's charming area with a variety of shops and restaurants. Several of the restaurants provide live entertainment (Fado) and there are wandering street musicians that also perform, which adds charm to the area.
