Fathom Favorites : Lisbon Shops

1. Luvaria Ulisses

Luvaria Ulisses

With a facade and decor preserved from its foundation in 1925, Portugal’s last shop singularly devoted to the manufacture and sale of fine leather gloves is both an experience and a source for a memorable souvenir. Their reputation for high-quality products has transcended the tiny storefront, which can accommodate no more than two guests at a time.
