An interesting and vibrant part of the city.The main shopping area of Lisbon with many interesting stores and cafes. Rua Garrett is the main street.

We visited the Se' or cathedral, shopped, and ate at a great restaurant half way to the castle while we listened to the Fado music. Don't try the Italian restaurant near the cathedral, rated by Trip Advisor. I ordered pasta with zucchini and got only 2 thin slices of zucchini with just pasta and a bitter salad.

This was a massive square with a statue opening to the beach on one side and the gate on the other opening onto the shopping streets with lots of restaurants and places to sit and watch the world go by

Dorling K gave it a big build up. San Roque spectacular inside & funicular up there interesting. Expected great buzz & choice of restaurants. Much more action in the Baixha.

Chiado is a fun and charming area in the center of "old Lisbon", although it mixes both the old and the new. There is lots of shopping in the area, along with cafes and museums. It is also eat to access via the new Baixa-Chiado station. In addition to visiting Chiado square and the Museu do Carmo, have a coffee... More

You see I feel sad when you're sad I feel glad when you're glad If you only knew what I'm going through I just can't smile without you I love it - I just don't understand what they feel sad about as they live in such a wonderful place

This was our first stop after arriving in the evening. We grabbed a cocktail at the tiny bar in the square then found the best pasteis of our visit nearby. Worth a visit, particularly in the evening as folks gather and socialize.

Whilst wanding around the narrow streets we stumbled upon this elevator (small version of the Eifel tower!). It looked completely out of place but was interesting to see. It was black in colour and I could see a lift and stairs inside. I could see people at the top looking at the views but there was a queue so we... More
