Av. Da Liberdade was born to fulfil Lisbon’s desire for its own Parisian-style Champs-Élysées. Its parallel roads are divided by long tongues of Calcada Portuguesa ( traditional cobblestone pavaments).
The boulevard has quickly renewed its appeal . Existing designers stores like ( Louis Vuitton, Prada, Armani, Gucci, etc mark their presence, theatres, and restaurants proliferate and brings a new urban feel . Av da Liberdade also hosts its very own street carnival on the night of June 12th, when Lisbon’s neighbourhoods compete head-to-head in the anual Marchas Populares ( “Popular Marches”) , displaying traditional songs and dances in a euforia of colour and music- an event that ends in drinks and snacks across the city antil sunrire.
