Discover treasures at Lisbon’s most iconic market, the Feira da Ladra, or flea market, where there’s always something original, kitsch or vintage to be found.
Come and discover Lisbon’s most original market. The Feira da Ladra, or Flea Market, which is immortalised in the poem by the Portuguese singer songwriter Sérgio Godinho, is held every Tuesday and Saturday in Campo de Santa Clara, behind the monastery of São Vicente de Fora. Traditionally dedicated to selling used objects, you’ll find real gems, azulejos, antiques and handicrafts, amongst indescribable bric-a-brac. The market dates back to 1272 and was held in various parts of the city before settling permanently here. From here you can easily visit the Panteão Nacional and the church of São Vicente de Fora, so the best thing to do is save this neighbourhood for a day when the market is on. Between souvenirs and bargains, you may just take the best memory of your stay in Lisbon from here.
