Rua das Portas de Santo Antão

A lively pedestrian street



Rua das Portas de Santo Antão, Lisbon


Leading up from behind the National Theater is Rua das Portas de Santo Antão, a lively pedestrian-only street known for its seafood restaurants. Even if you are not a fan of seafood, look out for the eye-catching tanks filled with gigantic lobsters by the windows. Most of the restaurants have outdoor seating.

It is also the location of the classical Coliseu dos Recreios, the Lisbon Coliseum, opened in 1890 as a circus, and today a concert venue.

At number 58 is the Casa do Alentejo, a peculiar 17th-century building worth dropping into. It serves as a meeting place for people from the Alentejo province, and has an attractive Moorish courtyard and a restaurant filled with tile decoration.

All the way at the end of the street is the Elevador do Lavra, Lisbon's first-ever funicular, powered by water when it opened in 1884. It leads to Jardim do Torel, a garden viewpoint off the beaten tourist path.
