Feira da Ladra – Shopping the flea’s style 
Last updated: Jul 13th, 2009 | By: Rafael Vieira 

The best and highly recommended way to arrive at the oldest flea market of Lisbon is by taking the famous and colorful Tram 28. It takes you from downtown to the Graça district in a trip that will take you through the narrow streets fabric of Alfama like it was a roller-coaster ride. 

After dropping you off in front of the large monastery and Royal Pantheon of São Vicente de Fora just follow the horde of people that roam avid of buying and selling all kind of stuff in the Feira da Ladra street market. Passing through a beautiful arc sided with the temple, the market is revealed in all its splendor, spreading its dozens of vivid, full and colorful tents over a large area of continuous slopes, streets and squares known all together as Campo de Santa Clara where a marketplace right in the middle still runs during the market days. The are shops in the buildings facing the market and in the marketplace itself. At the hundreds of tents and of loose sellers in every corner, one can find everything necessary or extravagant, from door handles, fridges, to old cameras and a wide selection of Fado vinyls! You simple can find anything here of all tastes, shapes, colors and usage! This is a must-do experiment, two days per week all year round!
