Neighbourhood: Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
How to get there

Fantastic letter gloves (lined with cashmere) for a good price. It is a tiny place, but the service was wonderful and the selection large. I should have bought two pairs!

Handmade, bespoke gloves for men and women. The purchasing experience is as delightful as the product. A tiny shop - room for two customers max. Kind, friendly, and knowledgeable.

Any photos you see of the shop, including on their own web page, aren't just of the front door area - that 10' or so is the width of the entire shop! Be prepared to wait outside if there's more than 1 additional customer being served. This establishment (est. 1925) hearkens back to the days of some tiny storefronts!

When we visited, stock was rather depleted (late November 23). Many of the styles shown in the windows and display wall and case were unavailable. Perhaps our timing wasn't good being as close to the Christmas season.

That said, we were able to find suitable gloves for gifts, the service was excellent, and the quality very good. Be prepared to pay about US$80 per pair.

A word of warning: This shop doesn't use the girth of a hand in their sizing considerations at all. Manufactured girth increases with length by some unknown formula, but all is sized based upon length. We were all prepared to use the careful measurements we'd made, only to find ourselves having to do some fast recalculations. If buying for others, you'll want to pay special attention to the length of fingers, with secondary attention to full palm base to fingertip length. We found that the smallest hand we needed to fit required the shop's size 7-1/4, and the largest hand 8-1/2. What we determined is that their sizes actually do appear to be based roughly upon palm base to fingertip measure in inches, whether intentional or not.

My wife and I stopped here around 5:00 pm and there were two people in line. We had to wait about 15 minutes to get in.

The gloves are first rate and the woman who waited on us was great. She knows everything about their gloves and is extremely personable. It was very enjoyable to deal with her.

My wife and I each bought a pair of gloves which cost around €80 each. Men’s gloves are limited to brown and black. My wife could choose from about 40% of the gloves on display, based on her hand size.

This is a very memorable shop and shopping experience. Highly recommended.

I purchased two lovely pairs of leather gloves from this nearly century old store. One pair for myself, the other for my daughter. I went through the traditional measurement, and hand/glove massage while my elbow rested on the pillow. It was like being part of an initiation ceremony. I will treasure the gloves, and the memory of this store from another era!.

my wife sews, knits and loves fabric. I found this on TA, several other Portugal sites, and I think Rick Steves. So I surprised my wife on our first day in Lisbon by taking her here and buying her a pair of "custom" gloves.
They do not make custom gloves, to my knowledge, but they do fit them personally to you. It's big enough for 1-2 people and it has been there nearly 100 years. Very delightful women running the show. A unique practical souvenir.

This is a very small store in downtown Lisbon, but it is a fun place to go. Only 2-3 people can fit in the store at one time. They sell beautiful leather gloves for men and women at a reasonable price. Paola, the owner, waits on you. She is delightful.

A friend took my mother and I to this tiny shop in Lisbon. There was a line out the door because only 2 customers can really fit inside at a time. You go in and choose your glove style, then they have you put your elbow on a leather pedestal so they can properly measure you for the right fit. The gloves are beautiful - I chose a teal pair with cashmere lining. The leather is so soft and the gloves are so well constructed. And also surprisingly, they were not as expensive as I expected. The prices were on par or less than what I have encountered back in the U.S. for lower quality construction and materials. Well under 100 Euro, even for cashmere lining. Plus, they come with a silk drawstring storage bag.

Fun place, doesn't take long once you're inside. Cool photo opps.

The Luvaria Ulisses was not ordinary shop for all kinds of reasons. First, it was tiny, having the capacity for one, or maybe two folks in it at a time. Then, it was beautiful, all adorned with red and gold ornamental design. And three, the gloves were stunning. My sister was taken care of by the proprietor, who placed her elbow on a round padded pillow, made especially for the elbows of glove-tryer-oners. Then the saleswoman looked at my sister's hand and could immediately tell what size she was. Impressive. A box was taken out of this long narrow hallway that went back into the shop. George pointed out that it reminded him very much of Olivander’s wand shop in Happy Potter. So true! So the gloves were extracted and then “opened” by the lady with this tool that looked like a large wooden tweezer thing. She stuck it in every finger of the glove and popped them open. And then finally, the glove was placed on the waiting hand. And they fit, well, like a glove. Finally the newly purchased gloves were placed in a satiny bag, which was then placed in a fancy shopping bag, and then given to my sister. All of this was fascinating and very very fun to watch. Loved this shop, even though I wasn't the purchaser!

I was really pleased my Lisbon hotel off the main Liberdade avenue was within walking distance of this tiny, tiny mighty shop. Truly an experience where they can assess your hand size and provide soft leather selections with or without Cashmere lining. Then your elbow is positioned on a special pad for the glove to be placed.. Felt like a hand model✋😉
