Call it a mini-mall. Call it a fashion bazaar. Call it a super concept shop. Or call it Lisbon’s cool, new shopping center for fashions, jewelry, lifestyle products and art. It’s Embaixada, a new collection of shops in the grand Ribeiro da Cunha Palace in Praça do Príncipe Real.
This stately Moorish-design building was built in 1857 by Ribeiro da Cunha, a wealthy businessman who made his fortune in Brazil. The building has two entrances, an Arabic-inspired interior courtyard, a “noble” staircase, stained glass windows, frescoes and art nouveau fireplaces.
