CAMPO DE OURIQUE | Neighbourhoods

LISBON EXPERIENCE

Today we talk about probably the most peaceful neighborhood of Lisbon. Built by the Engineer Ressano Garcia in 1879, Campo de Ourique is mainly known for its quite streets, and its traditional commerce.

Week or weekend you won’t find here the crowd you would find a shopping center, and still, we’re sure that you will find lots of great things to fill your shopping bags.

Campo de Ourique is also considered the neighborhood with the best living conditions in Lisbon. Fernando Pessoa, that lived some time in Hotel Bragança (lx boutique hotel), also lived next to Campo de Ourique’s market.

This market is the most recent attraction in town. It’s the new meeting point of people of all ages, where you’ll have several new stands (replacing the old fish and fruit stands) with different types of food and drinks.

Besides the market, if you go to Campo de Ourique you must visit Santo Condestável church, have some cakes at Padaria Portuguesa (Portuguese Pastry), eat in one its many good restaurants and take a walk through its beautiful central garden.
