Santos, Lisbon, Portugal
Young up and coming artists are drawn to Santos for inspiration, as it’s known as the design district of Lisbon and for good reason. It is one of the oldest neighbourhoods in the area with its traditional narrow cobbled streets, museums, art galleries and ornate churches plus other delights at every turn of a corner. International designers have opened upmarket shops to keep the wealthy home owners happy with new furniture designs both traditional and modern. This former parish of Lisbon is now part of Estrela although it retains its unique identity it’s a sheer delight to visit at anytime.
