Described as “a haven for the artsy set,” Lisbon’s Principe Real neighborhood has been highlighted in this weekend’s New York Times travel section. This residential area mostly known for its antique shops and gay bars since the 1980s has now become a hotspot for some of Lisbon’s most attractive new stores, many of them related to fashion and interior design.
