It’s funny, for a city that has almost every other street named after a flower, Lisbon has very few flower shops. However, one of the first things I did when I arrived as a tourist last year was to check out all the fresh flower spots. Even though I haven’t purchased any flowers here yet (I usually buy my flowers at Ribeira Market), I just love the site of this bright and cheery flower sellers at Rossio Square in the center of the city! And even though the flowers stocked tend to be of the “old-school” variety, I think that makes it ultimately more charming.
It’s so happy when you look at the square and see these three flower sellers all lined up with their yellow umbrellas. You can’t help but smile! Happy Valentine’s Day!
