Stores replaced by hotels – Lisbon

The Mensagem de Lisboa journal has published an exhaustive dossier on the crisis of commerce in the Baixa area. The loss of stores for the construction of hotels is a constantly developing reality. The newspaper points out that “on the streets of Prata and Ouro, 20 stores have been lost for 5 hotels”. The disappearance of traditional commerce has implications not only for the local business fabric but also for heritage.
