Founded in 1904, Sapataria do Carmo, one of the oldest and most charismatic stores in Lisbon, reports with some nostalgia to the past. The name in iron letters outside, the tidy windows, the velvet sofas and the old numbered boxes are fixing the world of this ancient space.

It is a small but very charming centennial house that has always been dedicated to the sale of Portuguese shoes of superior quality. Nowadays, it’s not only a shoe store but also a great icon of character and elegance.

For 3 generations, Sapataria do Carmo always belonged to the same family - Paulo da Cruz. In 2012, the "shoes business" has re-emerged with a new, young family in management. Four entrepreneurs, all from the same family. The new leadership decided to maintain the tradition of footwear of excellence, handmade, of national manufacture.

After several years dedicated to improvement and development, the little shop with character, has become an authentic centenary brand. In addition to the next door store - "Shoes You" by Sapataria do Carmo, now Sapataria do Carmo has three more locations:

Sapataria do Carmo - Rua do Carmo, 89

Sapataria do Carmo - Campo Ourique

Sapataria do Carmo - Funchal

The stores "Sapataria do Carmo" will preserve the unique decorative features of the store: "where it all began", from Largo do Carmo, nr. 26 - since 1904.
