Avenida da Liberdade, the luxury shopping destination
This avenue features prestigious shops, hotels, theaters and historic buildings
Avenida da Liberdade is a major artery of Lisbon, linking the Restauradores Square to Marques de Pombal. This avenue is the ultimate luxury shopping destination in the city.
Avenida da Liberdade, as we know it today, was built between 1879 and 1886, inspired by Parisian boulevards. Its creation was a landmark in the expansion of the city in northern direction.
This area contains many theaters and beautiful old buildings, many of which won the Valmor Prize, such as the houses number 206 to 218, in Art Noveau style, where the Prada store is now located. Here the statues of writers are also placed, such as: Almeida Garrett, Alexandre Herculano, amongst many others.
It is considered one of the most expensive avenues in the world.
