We went to Lisbon in search of hardware stores (among other things!) and didn’t find many levers, handles, rails or rivets to buy. In fact, we didn’t find any at all. As we work in Porto on a street where every other door peddles these wares, we thought the capital would be even richer in what was traditionally the hardware merchants’ area: São Paulo.
Alas, the wares are gone but not the storefronts of beautiful proportions and lettering in azulejos, more or less whimsical as you go by the street.
