Very helpful and friendly service, great selection of hand made Portuguese shoes with great prices, best in Lisbon. Most shops here sell international brands so it's good to finally find a shop selling local made shoes.

Visiting Sapataria do Carma was an absolute pleasure! The shop is charming and the staff helpful and delightful. The shoes are classically original--both beautiful to see and to wear. My husband and I left with eight pairs between the two of us.

"squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers
plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can
stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its
streets, shops, art galleries, theaters, museums and
viewpoints. It's also the home to the statue of the
famous statue of portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa,
having is usual espresso at "A Brasileira" as he used
