This is a very weird place but in an extremely positive way. It is a store with tinned fish which are very popular in Portugal and quite iconic to that country. This place looks like a museum but surprisingly - the prices are very cheap!...More
This is a good location to learn about the history of different companies but you can find most of the same products in the market just a few meters ahead on the same street for half the price. Unfortunately we discovered that after shopping in...More
I bought some of the fish as presents- lovely store and all very nicely packaged. Was taking my daughters laundry back in my hand luggage [long story !]and was deranged to be stopped by the security at the airport- who would have thought sardines are...More
After looking around in this beautiful store, the stuff present told us that there was no problem to carry these cans in the plane so we decided to take a couple with us.
We were stopped in the airport control and the police took the...More
We just happened on this store by accident and were so pleasantly surprised. The outside of the store has an old feel that almost blends in with the rest of the buildings. The inside is a spectacular collection of canned fishes with the histories if...More
Having grown up in the UK, where tinned fish was the nasty stuff you ate when you didn't have time to buy fresh fish, this place was a revelation. Took a bunch of cans home -- delicious, and a great range of options.
I feel in love with Portuguese tinned tuna when I first visited Portugal 14 years ago. I've been raving about the stuff ever since and today when I visited Loja das Conservas I got to taste the taste again! There's so much to choose for...More
Terrific shop with a large variety of fabulously decorated/branded cans of sardines and other fish. However, BE AWARE! You cannot take these cans in any cabin luggage on a plane. My friends and I had ours confiscated at the check-in at the airport as they...More
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the
imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
