I was so impressed by this place, they sell sardines from one hundred years ago! They can be transported in hand luggage and they are unforgettable. I visited three times during my holiday and I can't wait to come again!!

Although I think €7 for a tin of sardines is expensive, I am so glad that we went to visit this store. It is something different and unusual and it provides a nice gift or souvenir from your trip to Lisbon.
