The Pentice is a colonnaded walkway with row of old buildings, now all shops, within the High Street

*** I am away on holiday now for 2 weeks so have scheduled these posts to appear (hopefully!). Thanks for any comments & sorry if I don't respond straightaway. For my nearest location see Lisbon city daily photo and head south! ***


  1. Looks like a place I would love to stroll and browse.

  2. That was my favourite meeting-place in bad weather. Outside Boots!

    Is that a Starbucks I see? Maybe where Peacocks used to be. Or Blacks?

  3. The Winchester Mint was in the Pentice until the late 1200s when it burnt down.

  4. Thanks for the additional info Tricia - didn't have time to do my usual research!
