Cidade Baixa, Lisbon

(4.3/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
A main shopping and banking district, the pedestrianized Cidade Baixa, houses hundreds of stores and restaurants. Completely redesigned and reconstructed after the 1755 earthquake that devastated a large part of the city, this neighborhood boasts a grid layout that remains a living testimony to the Enlightenment ideas held dear by the 18th century city planners. Known locally as Lower Town, the elegant district represents one of the finest examples of earthquake-resistant architecture, featuring symmetrical wood lattices and inter-terrace walls designed for extra stability and fire containment. Explore the neighborhood by riding a tram, or watch the world go by from one of many alfresco cafes lining the area's neat streets. Use our Lisbon trip builder to visit Cidade Baixa on your trip to Lisbon, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • Delicious walking aimlessly going into streets that surprise us by trade, go by r. Augusta to the end and find the Tagus River, crossing the bow.

  • An area of Lisbon that can not miss on any visit. Easy of access, a good ride to foot or in tram allows knowing it in some time. Lots of gift shops, shopping and gastronomy. Museums and monuments; we must not forget without being many, those are very interesting
