THE FEIRA DA LADRA

The Feira da Ladra, which literally translates into “Thieve’s Market” (in Portuguese “ladra” is a woman thief), is a local flea market that spans several streets of Lisbon’s Alfama district (Campo de Santa Clara). It is believed that this market has its roots in the Middle Ages (since the 12th century to be accurate), when traders used to go there to sell their products as well as stolen goods (as the name suggests). Nonetheless, the name Feira da Ladra itself, only dates back to the 17th Century. The Feira da Ladra flea market is stuck between the splendid Panteão Nacional (the Pantheon) and the imposing church of São Vicente (near which the famous Tram 28 stops). But that’s not all: if you go a little bit more up hill, deaper into the flea market and pass the Panteão Nacional, you will reach a lovely parc (the Jardim Botto Machado) from which you will get a stunning view over the rooftops of the Alfama district and the Tagus River.Even if you’re not planning to buy anything (or if you’re not in a flea market mood), just go to the Feira da Ladra for the view and the atmosphere of the place. You won’t regret it. Where: Campo de Santa Clara, Alfama When: The market is held every Tuesday from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Saturday from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. How to get there: Tram 28 or walking (best, since you get to discover the beautiful narrow streets of the Alfama district) Source: http://www.fleamarketinsiders.com/feira-da-ladra-flea-market-lisbon-portugal/
