My recommendations of local places to visit in Lisbon..

Leitaria Moderna
leitaria-lisbon-guideSometimes you come somewhere where it looks like if the time is frozen, Leitaria Moderna is one of those places. Like many other areas in Lisbon’s old  communities where you can still witness the different kind of shades, forms, things and also persons from years ago, this area is the gathering spot of numerous residents of all ages to have a drink and a little conversation. It looks and feels like the 70’s. The customers who come here for several years have even asked the owner not to change the look of this place to keep it authentic!

Feira da Ladra

feira-lisbon-guideLadra literally translates to ‘Thief Fair’ and is the oldest market in Lisbon. Today, the traders here are perfectly legal, many of them gypsies showing their wares in the Campo de Santa Clara street, in the district of Alfama. The market starts at the Arco de São Vicente, an arch near where the famous Tram 28 stops. It’s quite a popular fair with many different objects, so take your time and enjoy browsing!

Martim Moniz


square-lisbonMoniz is a square full of life and one of the most multicultural areas in Lisbon. Here you’ll find different things from all over the world. This square is near from one of the most degraded neighborhoods in Lisbon (Mouraria), known for its various immigrant communities. The castel on top of the mountain next to the square was to hold of the enemies. Around the square and at Almirante Reis Avenue, we can buy spices or check for an Indian or Chinese supermarket.

Cemiterio dos Prazeres


cemiterio-lisbon-guideCemiterio dos Prazeres literally means the cemetery of fun, named after the district Prazeres in Lisbon. The cemetery was established after a cholera epidemic in 1833 and is the first of its kind in Portugal. It counts more than 70 trails which you can walk to go to the remarkable graves. Some grave houses have Windows with curtains, front yards and chairs and tables. There are also monumental tombs, such as that of one Pedro Folque. He built a real Fortress, with towers. There are a lot of famous Portuguese people buried here. Mainly actors but also singers, writers, painters and television presenters.

Confeitaria de Belém

cafe-lisbon-guideIf you are in Portugal, you start the day – just like the Portuguese – with an espresso and a sandwich or something sweet. In Lisbon you will find many good addresses, but if you also want to taste the famous sweet pastry pastel de Belém, you need to go to Confeitaria de Belém. There is this delicious puff pastry tart with vanilla cream made since 1837!
