Yup, it's amazing place but what even more amazed me, how many buildings are empty, not just old small ugly houses but nice big buildings at the main squares and streets where nobody cares and nobody lives. That was very weird - first flor with new shop and the rest of the 4 or 5 stories tall house dark, empty, sometimes with no windows any more...

Run down in places yes, but like Rome, it gives a more rustic feeling to the place. Though why are so many buildings vacant?

People moved to the suburbs when buy their own houses was affordable and easy. Those old buildings on the city centre are very old and they let them come to a point where renovate them involves a great amount of money. Today there´s plans to help and facilitate the renovation of those houses, as well as a new program to incentive people to rent apartments instead of buying them (which is veeery common here...our renting market still is very, very poor).
Although you can already see many buildings being renovated...the problem is as I mentioned before...since renovating these buildings is very expensive they will have to sell/rent them for high amounts which leaves most people out of that market.
But the main goal in Portugal for the moment when it comes to construction is renovate buildings in the old city centres and make people come back and live on them. It´s a process that will take time (even more while a severe crisis is going on) but people are enjoying this idea and they like the fact of living in the city centre which gives some sort of charm and prestige. And also with no need to commute and close to everything important, in this case, on the capital of a country.
