SHOPPING MALLS & DEPARTMENT STORES
Where to Shop in Lisbon
Lisbon has some of the largest shopping malls in Europe. Armazens do Chiado is the most central,
Colombo is the largest, and Amoreiras is the oldest. They all house well-known international retailers such as Zara
and fast food restaurants such as, yes, McDonald's. They're ideal for some shopping on a rainy day in the city,
but if you are looking for traditional markets, head to Mercado da Ribeira downtown (for fresh fruit, vegetables, fish, or simply a colorful
atmosphere), and the flea market
Feira da Ladra in Alfama.
