Baixa: Lisbon's Lower Town

By Philippa Burne, UK, September 2012

No reviews, be the first!

The main shopping district of Lisbon is Baixa, the downtown area which is literally down, being the flat part of the city between the hills on either side.

Baixa runs from the river at Comercio Square up to Rossio Square with straight avenues of neo-classical facades running between. Some of the buildings have the distinctive azulejos or tiles on their exteriors, and many of the street pavements have mosaics laid into them so don’t forget to look both up and down as you wander through Baixa!
