Ginjinha is unique to Lisbon and is made from sour cherries then turned into this wonderful tasting liqueurs. This place is and institution in Lisbon. This unique drink can be found all over the city but this place is old and steeped in history.

When in Lisbon, you must try this typical beverage called ginjinha! You can drink it at €1.40 per shot or buy an entire bottle. With or without the berries, it's a delicious cherry-like liquor with sugar, cinnamon, and brandy. Cheers! Saúde!

This place is tiny and often very busy. However, they are defrauding their customers by selling incorrect measures. The local authorities and tourist association should do something about this place. They sell their liqueur in 5 cl measures (a "Grand"). If served in a glass...More

We randomly bumped into this tiny bar it allowed us to try the typical cherry liquor from Lisbon. It was fast and not expensive. Nice experience!

This bar was recommended by our walking tour guide and certainly didn't disappoint. We dropped off here every evening after walking/ sightseeing to relax with mostly locals who clearly enjoy the ritual.

After trying all of the known ginjinha places in the area, this proved to be the best tasting one of all. This one makes all the others taste like cough syrup! Bought 3 bottles to take back home with me.

Known as a shop that still produces its own ginjinha, it was just down the road from our hotel, so we simply had to try a shot. We went for with cherries, dangerously moreish I have to say! People stand around outside having their shot,...More

Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site,
Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply
"Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake
construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755
earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its
name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in
Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the
Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the
