Photographer's Note

This is a shopping window in Lisbon that was truly attractive for the tourists.

Lisbon remains Western Europe's least expensive capital and shopping is also a cultural experience, especially when visiting historic stores like the tiny Luvaria Ulisses glove shop and Casa das Velas do Loreto for candles (Rua do Loreto, 53).

In Baixa there's a mix of tourist kitsch "Made in China" and more genuine local souvenir shops, international chains, and archaic-but-charming shops like haberdashers surviving on low rents. The main pedestrian shopping street in town, Rua Augusta, offers both local and international brands.
