Favorite Shops in Lisbon

The greatest pleasure of shopping in Lisbon is that the big international brands haven’t taken over the retail scene, allowing independent local talent to shine. While the usual luxury suspects are clustered on Avenida da Liberdade, the shopping areas of Chiado and Príncipe Real are lined with small boutiques that showcase unique design sensibilities as well as Portuguese excellence in textiles, ceramics and leather. While not all of these are “concept shops” per se, they sell a variety of goods by different makers and merit a poke around.

The rooms of this ornate 19th-century neo-Moorish palace in Príncipe Real are now occupied by small boutiques featuring exclusively Portuguese-made products: fragrant Castelbel soaps, wool capes and ponchos from heritage brand Ecolã and baby clothes by Organii. The menswear offerings are especially strong, with locally designed shirts and scarves at A Indústria, Armando Cabral leather shoes and sneakers, and organic cotton T-shirts and loungewear at Isto. The impressive central courtyard is enlivened by a gin bar.
