Avenida da Liberdade artery is the Lisbon's version of the Parisian Champs-Elysées. It is a tree-lined avenue covered with Portuguese sidewalks between Restauradores and Marquês de Pombal squares, where the great luxury stores can be found. Starts at Rua Castilho in the north, then down the avenue.
This is also an area of theaters and beautiful old buildings, although many others have been demolished for new construction in the mid-twentieth century. Going up the hill on the east side (with the help of the Elevador do Lavra) you reach the old parish of Pena, a more typical neighborhood, where the famous fadista Amália Rodrigues was born, and where there is a little known viewpoint, Miradouro do Torel .
However, if you head south, going against the river Tagus, you can continue your shopping until the Pombaline downtown.
