Livraria Bertrand

Opened in 1732, this Lisbon staple holds the Guinness World Record as the world’s oldest bookstore still in operation. Over the course of nearly three centuries, it has changed hands several times and had 11 different names (that we know of).


Today it serves Lisbon’s bibliophiles and acts as a space for intellectual and cultural conversations.

Dois Corvos brewery

Dois Corvos is an independent, family-owned brewery located in the Marvila neighborhood. The brewery itself is a bit unassuming, as the entrance – a dark grey sliding door with a black crow on it – easily blends into the surroundings.


The brewery runs occasional tours, or you can visit the tap room for a beer tasting and a focaccia sandwich, and to take in the sights, sounds and smells of a working brewery.

Underdogs Gallery

Witness the strength of Lisbon street knowledge at this gallery run by the street art collective Underdogs.


Located behind Cais do Sodré, Underdogs hosts several solo and group shows throughout the year, and runs street art tours of the city.

Miradouro da Nossa Senhora do Monte

Miradouro da Nossa Senhora do Monte has one of the most breathtaking views of Lisbon.


If you don’t mind working your glutes and hamstrings, climbing to the top is worth it for the views of the city – especially when it’s lit up at night.

LxFactory is a collection of converted warehouses under the 25 de Abril bridge. Once unknown to the average tourist, it’s now recognised as one of the coolest corners of Lisbon.


By day, check the bookshops, vintage homeware stores and artists’ studios. By night, go for a drink or choose from more than a dozen eateries. It is also the home of a creative community in the city, Village Underground.
