Go Treasure Hunting at Feira da Ladra Flea Market!

Treasure hunting. A phrase that makes us smile with excitement since we were kids. Well, Lisbon has a very special treasure hunting treat for you if you are into flea markets that are that tad bit different. On Tuesdays and Saturdays head to the streets at the foot of the National Pantheon and near São Vicente de Fora church, in Graça neighboorhood, and you will find those streets bustling with makeshift stalls and crowds of treasure hunters like you. Believe me, you will find anything and everything on sale here, at bargain prices, whether for yourself or to bring home as a gift, including that bizarre old trinket you would never imagine buying. And actually, if you have patience and a sharp eye, you will find beautiful and exquisite old decorative objects in porcelain, crystal or wood, some of them former parts of valuable collections, at totally low prices. Haggle it and buy it!
