Cais do SodreFlickr user pedrosimoes7

Cais do Sodre is a hip riverside district offering both superb dining options and a good dose of culture. Home to the 19th century Mercado da Ribeira, Lisbon's largest food market, it is no wonder that so many exciting new restaurants have sprung up in the area. Meanwhile, the Praça de São Paulo, is a beautiful area to explore showcasing some lovely 19th and 20th century architecture (the São Paulo church is particularly worth a visit for its beautifully painted ceilings). Beyond impressive architecture, trendy restaurants and chic riverside bars there are also some exciting galleries to explore such as the contemporary Allarts Gallery. The best hotels in Cais do Sodre tend to be contemporary boutique-y affairs set in historic renovated buildings.
