A main shopping and banking district, the pedestrianized Cidade Baixa, houses hundreds of stores and restaurants. Completely redesigned and reconstructed after the 1755 earthquake that devastated a large part of the city, this neighborhood boasts a grid layout that remains a living testimony to the Enlightenment ideas held dear by the 18th century city planners. Known locally as Lower Town, the elegant district represents one of the finest examples of earthquake-resistant architecture, featuring symmetrical wood lattices and inter-terrace walls designed for extra stability and fire containment. Explore the neighborhood by riding a tram, or watch the world go by from one of many alfresco cafes lining the area's neat streets.

With many central squares, consistent public transport and vast commercial structure, it still houses old buildings, churches, monuments and diverse attractions. Amid this hectic combination, the sympathy of the Portuguese people still springs, always ready to help you.
