Lisbon. Praca do Principe Real and Rua Dom Pedro V.

Whenever I am in Lisbon, I’m staying in the Bairro Alto neighborhood. There’s plenty of accomondation (such as Pensao Globo, the Independente Hostel & Suites, Residencia do Norte or Pensao Londres) as well as cafes, restaurants, shops and and amazing views. Within the last years I came to love the upper part of Bairro Alto (where all of the above mentioned places are located) and the adjacent neighborhood Principe Real.

Here are some spots I love:

The bar “Lost In” offers cocktails, snacks, cozy seating and a stunning view over Lisbon.

Pensao Londres_3195

The “Pensao Londres” (Rua Dom Pedro V 53) is my first choice for accommodation; rooms cost between 20€-35€ per person a night including breakfast.

If you miss breakfast at the Pensao, downstairs is the Padaria Sao Roque – one of the prettiest cafes in Lisbon, which is also known by the name “Catedral do Pao” (Cathedral of Bread).

The little park at Praca do Principe Real does not have one, but two Quiosques. Little (self-service) cafes you can find all over Lisbon, offering drinks and snacks.

The cypress in the middle of Praca do Principe Real has a caliber of 23 meters.

Lisbon lovers at Praca do Principe Real 28A offers souvenirs for reasonable prices, which are luckily not as boring as the stuff you’d find in a traditional souvenir shop.

Next door is a new shopping gallery called “Embaixada”, located in an moorish palace (click here to see my post about it).
