Merces, a parish in south-western Lisbon, is one of the lesser-known areas of the city, off the tourist track, but the ideal place to stay for a relaxing holiday in this vibrant capital. Largely a residential district, although scattered with galleries and government buildings, its charms are only just beginning to catch on, meaning that staying in accommodation in Merces you get to mingle more with locals than holidaymakers. The Jardim do Principe Real is one of Lisbon's loveliest parks, perfect for spending lazy days in the sun and the Metro links ringing the district can take you quickly into central Lisbon for sight-seeing.
Experience Merces like a local
When you wake up, take a leisurely stroll to the Jardim do Principe Real, this elegant park is surrounded by beautiful buildings and features a monumental lake. There is a terrace cafe to make this the perfect spot for some breakfast. Start your wanderings by taking the underground passages that lead to other historic spots in Merces, including the Chafaris do Rua do Seculo and the Plaza des Flores, to the north. Walking along scenic Rua Passos Manuel (once considered one of the best addresses in Lisbon) you will come across a lot of excellent restaurants, many serving local delicacies. If you fancy some shopping, the area is known for its antique shops and the Rua Eduardo Coelho is a lovely winding street with a number of shops and bars lining it. You'll find some very traditional restaurants here, including taverns that date back to the 1600s. As for evenings, head to the Bairro Alto to the west for clubs, or go back to the terrace at the Jardim do Principe Real for a quiet drink - it's open until 2am.
Renting holiday accommodation in Merces
Although this parish is growing in popularity, it's still one of Lisbon's best kept secrets, with lots of family homes to be found in the smart streets. Staying in one of the many self-catering apartments in Merces is an economical choice; you can find a number of very well-appointed properties, often at cheaper rates than for similar places in the heart of the Bairro Alto tourist district. It is an ideal location for families, due to its relative quietness, but people looking for lively nightlife can easily get into the party district. Lisbon is a unique, atmospheric city, a diverting destination for people of all ages.
