"So, you want to get that special someone a lovely memento of Portugal, but really, a refrigerator magnet of a cockrell, or a T-shirt with a picture of Cristiano Ronaldo, just isn’t what you are thinking? Step inside a unique shop filled with original and traditional Portuguese products, A Vida Portuguesa (The Portuguese Life)." Portugal Confidential. "Conceived by journalist Catarina Portas, the first A Vida Portuguesa shop, opened its doors in 2007 on a little hidden back street in Chiado, Lisbon. The store celebrates the Portuguese identity with old-style Portuguese products that are still manufactured today. Portas has since opened a second shop in Porto. Unique items like soaps, teas, toothpaste, bolts of fabric and cake forms are handmade, Portuguese-crafted or have been around forever. (...) Chosen by Time Out magazine as one of the “10 most original stores in Lisbon.” This is Portuguese spirit at its best. For more information, visit A Vida Portuguese Website. If you can’t get to Lisbon or Porto, browse A Vida Portuguesa Online shop for gifts and items unique to the Luso lifestyle."
