It is really central to everything in Lisbon. The streets leading from Rossio Square to the waterfront are really heart of the town with many shops and restaurants around. The area is very crowded and worth to visit while travel in Lisbon.

Gorgeous long streets, all leading down from the hilly parts of the city to the glittering sea. The area is brimming with shops and restaurants, some touristy, some little gems. It's definitely worth a wander.

The center of downtown Lisbon, full of shops and places to eat and drink. Crowded, full of life. Maybe too many souvenir stores and tacky restaurants, but come for a stroll. Some pedestrian streets.

Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site,
Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply
"Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake
construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755
earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its
name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in
Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the
Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the

You should not confuse Lisbon with Boston. In the heart of Lisbon you can choose among several lodging possibilities (including rental apartments), a walking distance from plenty of options for your shopping.
