With more antique stores than any of the other shopping streets in Lisbon (or Portugal), Rua de Sao Bento is the place to come for an original 19th-century exotic wood dining table or a life-size religious effigy. Dealers range from the professional to the chaotic, although most are clued up about their prices. Most close for a 2-hour lunch, but once a year at the end of September they open for 24 hours. Traditional glassware, ceramics and original azulejos (tiles) taken from churches and renovated buildings can also be purchased. There is also a number of good contemporary design shops.
