I was in Lisbon on January so all the narrow up-and-down streets were lit up by decorations, squares with Christmas trees..It was beautiful. Although this was the main hub for tourists, I didn't mind at all. It just made the streets more... More

Up and down the hills we go...great shops, restaurants, bakeries, cafes, street performers. Exceptionally beautiful on December evenings when the Christmas lights are on.

Nice during the night for a stroll, lively, but this is where you find mc donalds and starbucks and the luxury stores, not the quaint typical Portuguese things.

Places and heritage to see and live: museums, art galleries, theaters, opera, buildings (churches, palaces, convents), etc. Cafés, bars and restaurants: from the typical and historic to the modern and innovative. Romantic place, modernist, full of activity where all the... More

A glamorous part of Lisbon with larger buildings and some good open spaces. Like all of the old part of Lisbon - stunning to wander around and look at gorgeous architecture and quirky buildings.
