Given the great devotion that the Basilica of Santa Luzia inspires, next to it there is a shop selling religious articles, where you can buy all sorts of holy pictures, religious images and offerings of the Sacred Heart. As it's such a tourist attraction, they also sell souvenirs to tourists, from postcards to pottery and even aprons! Outside, in front of the store and also in other parts of the Monte de Santa Luzia, there are stalls selling handicrafts and sweets.
It is a craft shop specializing in Portuguese, but the main thing is not what they sell, but where they sell. The store is located in the former stables of a 12th century cathedral, and the old troughs are now used as the store's shelves. Worth a visit.
This is one of the shops that caught my attention on my first few hours in the city, just a short walk from Vila Flor Cultural Center. It is an interior decoration shop, but quite modern and not very traditional Portugese. Both the window and the interior of the store was perfectly ordered. It sold designer furniture and all kinds of gift items and decorative items.
This shop is about 2 km from the city, beside the reservoir viewpoint and the Environmental Tourist Interpretation Centre. It was built by the City Council in order to raise awareness, promote and support local products and the artisans who made them using ancient techniques. Here you can find typical costumes, objects made of wicker or wood, regionally typical musical instruments (bagpipes, castanets, drums, piccolos cane, etc.), miniatures of Jesus of Cartolinha, wines from the Arribes, artisan jams, etc.. The store also has a cafe where you can have a drink while gazing on the Arribes.
Next to the Sanctuary of Bom Jesus do Monte there is definitely nothing missing in terms of the typical souvenir and religious items. Here you can find everything from ceramic figurines, to postcards, guidebooks, bracelets and necklaces and even toys. Of course, the are souvenirs of the Sanctuary itself, gifts candles, rosaries, religious and small sculptures.
A few steps from the central square, Largo da Oliveira Rainha street, I found this shop that caught my attention and it was open even though it was 11pm . This is an old bookstore where you can find all types of books, both used and 2nd hand as well as antiques, collections of stamps, coins and banknotes, watercolors, prints and all types of trinkets. It is an interesting place where even today there are gatherings of intellectuals and artists.
One of the most well-known things about Borba (plus Alentejo wines) is its variety and number of antique shops. In the center of town, right next to one another, there are a number of shops with lots of antiques of all kinds. Entering these stores is like entering a time machine. You can find everything there. Yes, we're talking about real antiques. There are many museum objects, recovered over the years and at high value. However, you can still find affordable things. It's at least worth a visit.
This is an alternative clothing store that is located next to the modern mall called Santa Catarina, may I call your attention to a couple of musicians playing at its door. Its specialty is clothing and punk rock, goth, or alternative styles. It has the latest Dr Martens' and increíblemete extravagant clothing which are hard to find elsewhere.
Bordallo Pinheiro is a shop selling handmade pottery, located in Caldas da Rainha, north of Lisbon. It is near the Parque Dom Carlos I and Barata Feyo Museum. They sell original ceramic items, such as turtle-shaped dishes and other things. However, I did not find the service to be very good (at least on this particuar day). I asked for some help in locating some items that I had ordered and ended up having to look for them myself!
A few steps from the Cathedral of Lamego is the shop "Be Gourmet". As the name suggests, it is basically food, and it specializes in gourmet products where you can buy all kinds of wines from the Douro region (sparkling, port wine ...), cheeses, chocolates, organic products, tea of different kinds, honey, oil from the region of Tras-o-Montes, etc.. It has also some handicrafts such as pottery or baskets. It is a good place to be able to buy souvenirs, especially if you want to buy gastronomy.
Rodrigues House is one of the most traditional food stores in Lamego. It's slightly hidden in a pedestrian street just behind Guedes Teixeira Visconte Avenue. The place is tiny and is seen to have hearth. You can buy local food products as well as from Portugal in general, such as cod, mountain cheeses, sausages, ham and wine.
