Take Lisboa launches a freetour like no other: an off the beaten track tour that mixes past and present, old and new.
This visit shows the old walls of Lisbon's houses painted with numerous street art projects by local and international artists. It also presents some of Lisbon's most notorious viewpoints with breathtaking scenery. And we finish at Feira da Ladra, the city's most emblematic Flea Market.
Discover Lisbon’s most original market. Feira da Ladra, or Flea Market, often thought to mean "Thieve's Market" (in Portuguese "ladra" is a woman thief) but it actually derives from "ladro," a bug found in antiques, is held every Tuesday and Saturday in Campo de Santa Clara, behind the monastery of São Vicente de Fora.
Traditionally dedicated to selling used objects, you’ll find real gems, portuguese tiles, books, clothes, stamps antiques and handicrafts. A myriad of small stalls sell all sorts of second-hand and new products, and other traders simply display their store on a stretched-out blanket.
The market dates back to 1272 and was held in various parts of the city before settling permanently here.
Between souvenirs and bargains, you may just take the best memory of your stay in Lisbon from here.
Exceptional guide and lots of fun.
