Typical Modern shops

luvaria_ulisses

 

There are several shops around Lisbon that have maintained their antique appearance, or have revived traditional goods. Within a world that is constantly modernising and globalising at an extremely fast pace, it has been with some effort that many shops have managed to maintain their doors open for so many years. They have modernised their products without loosing their antique design, traditional manufacturing process, and their classic use. Others have opened recently to commercialise typical goods that cannot be found anywhere else anymore. Shop around Lisbon for some of the best Portuguese treasures.

Apart from other things, Portugal is known for its beautifully smelling and wrapped soaps, the traditional cockerel from Barcelos, sheets, candles, some spices and conserves, wines, and many other products. A true Portuguese shopping experience can be felt in antique and specialised shops in the centre, or more modern shops that commercialise the archetypal products made in Portugal.

Here are some suggestions:

Classic shops:

A Ginjinhaginjinha_lisbonconnection

Ginjinha is made out of distilled cherry. It is popularly drunk in Lisbon, Óbidos, Alcobaça, and in the Algarve. It may be served with a fruit laying at the bottom of the glass, or purely with nothing, famously called a Ginjinha “with” or “without”. And one of the most remarkable shops for ginja is in the Rossio area. This is a small walk-in shop, where you may have a glass or take a bottle home. For over a century, this shop has been serving this sweet and sticky drink and pleasing the tastes of its visitors for a very low price.

Conserveira de Lisboa


Fish may not be your thing, but it’s this shops speciality, and even if you’re not aiming to buy, this epic shop is worth a visit! Hundreds of hand-wrapped colourful tins with Portuguese fish, fill the shops walls. It opened in 1930, selling all kinds of foods, however, during the Second World War, the demand for conserved fish developed very quickly, which helped this brand grow at a fast pace. Its glory lived for few years, as frozen goods substituted conserved ones, forcing this shop to focus on a niche of high-quality products, with an interesting and classical presentation.
