A treasure hunt in Lisbon

Cpmposot Embaixada“Where did you get that?” people used to ask when they saw someone wearing an interesting piece of clothing or jewelry. This question is now rarely asked. Shopping centers all over the world carry the same goods made by the same brands. In a world of abundance, the thrill of the new has become hard to find.

But you can find it at Embaixada, a new shopping center in Lisbon’s Príncipe Real neighborhood.  Housed in a sumptuous palace built in 1857, it features a collection of unique stores that sell original clothing and decorative pieces. Visiting Embaixada is like going on a treasure hunt. Take home a few prized possessions and people will ask: “where did you get that?”

Embaixada is located on Praça do Príncipe Real, n. 26. Click here for their website.

  1. Hi there! I am loving the blog and picking up lots of helpful tips for my upcoming trip. I’ll be vacationing from a part of Africa where its tough to get quality beauty services — a good haircut would be amazing! Do you have any recommendations on salons (English, French, or Spanish speaking)? Thanks!
