    Pingo Doce: Good for cheap water.

    by leics Updated Apr 19, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There's a useful supermarket inside Cais do Sodre station and, on my secon visit, I found another branch tucked away near Rossio station.

    I found buying water there was much cheaper than elsewhere. I imagine the same applies to all Lisbon supermarkets, but the two Pingo Doce branches are the only supermarkets I've spotted in the city centre.

    Small bottles were 10 euro cents each in 2009, but in 2014 cost 32 cents....but that is still well below the prices charged in newsagents, on stalls etc.

    Buying large bottle and refilling your smaller one as necessary would be even cheaper (and greener).

    Pingo Doce also stocks sandwiches, fruit, pastries, wine, beer,the makings for picnic lunches etc etc. The one at Cais do Sodre in particular is a really useful place to know about if you are travelling to or from the coast, and the one near Rossio is perfectly sited for picking a Sintra picnic.

    ViniPortugal: Wine Tasting

    by solopes Updated Dec 17, 2013

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Right in the centre of Lisbon, under the arches of Praça do Comercio, one organization including most of the local associations and producers have a shop where you can get all the information needed to buy Portuguese wines, and even taste them.

    It's a good stop.

    Pingo Doce: Handy supermarket chain in Lisbon

    by WardrobeMK Written May 13, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Pingo Doce supermarket chain is handy for everyday bits and pieces (and for buying yummy food and drink to take back home of course!) in Lisbon.

    (For UK residents = similar to Tesco/Sainsburys)

    To find the nearest one go to this page

    http://www.pingodoce.pt/pt/lojas-pingo-doce

    In the drop down menu choose

    "Lojas"
    "Todas" (and if looking for a bigger version either "Super", "Mega" or "Hiper")
    and under "Todos" choose "Lisboa"

    Use your hotels postcode to find the nearest one - enter it where says "Código Postal"

    Personally I've used the one in Saldanha on Rua Tomas Ribeiro

    https://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=Rua+Tom%A1s+Ribeiro,+Lisboa+Region,+Portugal&hl=en&ie=UTF8&ll=38.731699,-9.149176&spn=0.002067,0.010321&sll=38.731715,-9.14835&sspn=0.004586,0.010321&oq=rua+thomas+ribeiro+lisboa&hnear=Rua+Tom%A1s+Ribeiro,+Lisboa,+Portugal&t=m&z=17&layer=c&cbll=38.731695,-9.149177&panoid=t6breHpWNKnQ0TDpQDxokQ&cbp=11,252.84,,0,-0.09

    and the one inside the Campo Pequeno shopping center http://www.campopequeno.com

    https://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=Campo+Pequeno,+Lisboa,+Portugal&hl=en&ll=38.742335,-9.146698&spn=0.004134,0.020642&sll=38.731766,-9.149358&sspn=0.004586,0.010321&oq=campo++Lisboa++Portugal&hnear=Campo+Pequeno,+Lisbon,+Portugal&t=m&z=16&layer=c&cbll=38.742328,-9.146702&panoid=-pd1y_qFi1UPZd8i6yvn2A&cbp=11,84.01,,0,-5.15

    Tapetes de Arraiolos: Arraiolos carpets of Portugal

    by SOLODANCER Written Sep 15, 2011

    One's initial and instinctive thought is usually that of a surprise, 'what, Portugal produces its own carpets?' Indeed, surprisingly enough, the country does make carpets; and they're unique and good ones too. Okay, few of us would bother to buy a big item as a carpet to carry home but for those who will not hesitate to spend away, a unique Arraiolos carpet would be a special purchase and a worthy investment no doubt.

    Tho the industry has so much dwindled and scaled down so since its heyday in the time of the Moors during the 14th century when Portugal and Lisbon especially was populated by the invading people from North Africa. And through this occupation of the country that this particular craft was derived from actually which had its origins from Persia. Nowadays, the Arraiolos carpet-making is small-scale compared to the massive carpet industries of Morocco, Tunisia, Turkey and industries centered in muslim Asia...and is based exclusively in its name-sake town of Arraiolos which is north of Evora.

    Like the Persian rugs, the Arraiolos carpet involves a technique that is a form of long-armed cross-stitch which the Portuguese calls 'bordado mourisco'. The patterns vary from animal to floral and other abstract motifs, all based on Islamic interpretation. But these days the designs have evolved under so many including highly modern forms. These carpets have always been used as both wallhangings as well as floorcoverings. Some fantastic ancient ones can be seen at the Museu de Arte Antiga in the Lapa district of Lisbon.

    It's good if one is interested to travel to Alentejo and make a purchase directly from the remaining families that do make them still right in Arraiolos. If not, when one doesn't have the time to explore in Arraiolos itself this great craft still being produced by hand among a few village women, the main shop to visit in Lisbon for them is the Tapetes de Arraiolos located at corner of Rua Imprensa Nacional and Escola Politecnica in the hilly neighborhood of Bairro Alto. They have a wide selection of Arraiolos and will pack and ship but also will take orders of particular design of your own.

    Be warned tho that none of these carpets are cheap which is the case for all quality-made carpets anyhow.

    Androm: Big gothic shop

    by Turska Written Mar 21, 2010

    Lots of gothic clothes in small and very hot shop.It was allmost hard to breath here.How do they work here!
    I didn´t buy anything,because they seemed to have everything only about size s or xs.. The staff wasn´t very helpful and the shop was hard to find open.We walked by every day,but it was open only twice.The openeing times didn´t match the truth.
    If it wouldn´t been so hot inside (it wasn´t outside more than +25 or so),I might have spend little more time here.
    Interesting shop,too bad for the prices and bad air.

    What to buy: Lots of mini-shirts for example-for a goth/rock/heavy-people.Laso lots of jackets.I allmost bought a jacket,but we flew by Ryanair,and I had no room in my back!

    What to pay: Less than in Finnish similar shops.Hard to tell exact prices,they vary.

    Dark doll: So lovely coupple selling gothic clothes

    by Turska Written Mar 21, 2010

    I think some of you are waiting me to write about gothic clothes shops.So here´s the best we found in Lisbon!
    They have lots of clothes made by the wife otf the coupple,and very nice bags made by their friend.Also many kinds of accesories.

    And the coupple was so friendly and lovely-we felt so wellcome,that it was a shame we didn´t find so much to buy!(too low budget,wrong sizes..) but we´d definetly go back,if we will visit Lisbon one day again!!I did buy handmade hairpins and my husband did buy a t-shirt.

    What to buy: Their own collection,designed by the wife of that coupple!

    What to pay: For a gothic-shop,we think it was cheap.Remembering that they had so much hand made also!

    Ourivesaria Aliança: Going back in time

    by pieter_jan_v Written Dec 15, 2009

    The best thing of shopping in Lisbon is that you encounter some very original store exteriors and interiors. Ourivesaria Aliança is one of the best examples. The woodcarving on the front is amazing.

    The shop is a Louis XV-style jewelry and watch shop.

    Disco Lecção: Vinyl Records: Disco Lecção

    by pieter_jan_v Updated Nov 29, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Disco Lecção is a small shop in Lisbon's Bairro Alto, almost at the top of the stairs coming from Praça Dom Pedro IV.

    The collection is well sorted and there are some hidden gems.

    Unfortunally in the album section, many re-released albums are mixed with original issues.

    It's a vinyl only shop and that makes it very interesting to collectors.

    What to buy: Records!

    What to pay: Prices at the high end.

    Vinil Experience is a 2 room shop, hidden at the 2nd floor at Rua de Loreto.

    A strange shop, because there is a cast loaded with album, but locked for the visitors.

    For the rest there are some nice items, but the total quantity of the merchandise is not that big.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Carbono is a great shop when you are looking for 2nd hand vinyl records.

    The back of the large room is reserved for vinyl and the 45 RPM records cartons are most promising.
    It's not always the records, but the special Portuguese sleeves are very interesting.

    There's space enough to sit and go around the boxes in your pace.

    Don't forget the first section of the shop; I found some interesting CD's as well.

    Business hours:
    Mo-Sa: 11AM - 7PM.

    What to buy: Records!

    What to pay: From 50 Eurocents and up.

    Napoleao Wine Shops: Wine and Port Packaged to Go

    by Roadquill Written Jun 13, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is an excellent wine and port shop in Alfama. The wines were reasonable and the ports were as good a deal as we say anyplace else. I picked up some Douro Valley reds, a vintage 1997 port and a 20 year port. We then brought three more bottles acquired on an earlier wine tasting and for 15 euro they packaged the six bottles up so that they could be checked on the plane. They did a great job, with lots of cardboard, styrofoam, so that nothing was loose. It survived Lisbon to Newark to LA.

    cdgo.com: Discounted internet Portuguese books

    by halikowski Written Apr 11, 2009

    Looking to improve on this. Portugal doesn't have an amazon site, nor anything like the Brazilian mercadolivre.br.
    So it's hard to get good, cheap Portuguese books.
    Paperbacks commonly cost 25 euros, which is too much in my opinion.
