Feira da Ladra is next to National Pantheon. We went there by metro blue line to go to Apolonia station. From the metro station, you can see the top part of National Pantheon. Walk toward it and you will see the market.

The market covers quite a big area. We went there on Tuesday and it was quite busy in the afternoon. Most of the vendors sell used stuff/antique, some sell new items or souvenirs. You can bargain but don't expect a huge price cut.

Although it is difficult to find something appealing, it is worthwhile to visit if you are in Alfama.

I cannot find a public washroom there.

If you love a flea market, this one is sprawling and varied, from antiques and records to Lisbon's famous tiles and various vintage fashion/homeware. Worth a meander around, with a pitstop in a nearby cafe when you get tired. Just wish I had travelled with more than a small cabin bag to bring home treasure!

When I was told about this market my expectations were "soso" based on the very few pictures I was shown. If you are British then its highly likely you would class this event as a car boot sale or similar. For me, a market needs to meet other criterias and this place just didnt do it. 90% of the goods are second hand in my opinion. If you like charity shop/car boot goods then this is definitely up your street. No food vendors or alike to grab a bite to eat or sit down (I ended up under a tree with a snack that I brought with me). The sea is in view so I decided to walk heading towards to harbour to explore which lead me to the highway and that was a wrap for me😐 Made my way back to my accomodation.

We went on a Tuesday and it was still large, hearing it is even bigger on Saturdays. So many things to see. One guy was selling an old WW2 Bomb sight. Still kicking myself for not buying but it was very expensive. My wife bought a few pictures. Apparently in Portugal they like new things not so keen on Antiques so they sell them. Where us North Americans love the antiques since our countries are so new in comparison.

No problem with Pick pockets at all. Contrary to what everyone is trying to scare you with

Feira da Ladra in Lisbon is one of the most interesting attractions not only of the Alfama district, but also of the whole of Lisbon. The market takes place on Campo de Santa Clara and there you can find literally everything, from old bottles, through azulejo tiles, used clothes, handmade jewelry, old furniture, vinyl records, to memorabilia from the war or former Portuguese colonies. We will also find a wide selection of souvenirs from Portugal and Lisbon, new CDs and DVDs as well as audio and rtv equipment. The market takes place every Tuesday and Saturday, but Saturday is definitely more turistic. Therefore, definitely, if we want to see the more traditional side of the market, let's go to Feira da Ladra on Tuesday. There are few places that on the one hand have retained their traditional charm, and on the other are an interesting tourist attraction , Feira da Ladra undoubtedly has both of these features. After visiting, we can go to visit Alfama and allow ourselves to get lost in its narrow streets or spend a moment with an aromatic coffee in one of the numerous cafes.

One of our first places visited in Alfama. It's a cute market, much bigger than we expected! Filled with lots of little bits from loads of stall holders. Worth a stroll through, it has a pretty viewpoint and some fun street art. Close to the National Pantheon too, so definitely worth a wander round on a Tuesday or Saturday when it's open.

Easily accessible (metro Santa Apolonia), it does worth spending a Sunday walking the narrow streets in this open market dating back to the thirteenth century, devoting himself to the trade in antiquities and second hands objects. The best business is done early in the morning on Sundays and Tuesdays. Unmissable for fans of this kind of market. Do not worry with the name "Feira da Ladra". It is safe!

It's a terrible market. Most of the stuff is actually garbage: old computer parts, busted tools and ugly attempts at art.

Instead go to the waterfront, check out the arch and look at the stands there which contain handmade local crafts -- much nicer!

Our travel plans (flight and hotel) were booked through you. All went perfectly, including the weather. The people, the sights, the food and the shopping in Portugal can not be matched. Take the time to know its people and to wonder a bit off the beaten path.

We can not wait to go back.

Lot of junk! But some good stuff if you look hard. I took a cab from city center it cost 6 euro one way.The real nice stuff were over-priced, Its a busy Saturday morning with lots of stuff and people. Get early to see it all, opens at 7 am (I think) Well worth the trip!
