There is always something to see here - lots of street musos, eateries, retail therapy and serviced by the #25 and 28 tram, Baixo-Chiado Metro and at night, heaps of Fado and bars.

The Chiado is upscale and a great place to wander about in the haphazard streets. Good shopping & good places to eat.

Breathtaking architecture. We couldn't stop staring at the buildings. There are shops, restaurants and bars. Nice for a walk if you are not in a hurry because it will surely keep you busy for a long time. Don't miss it!

This is the place to eat. Tons of cool restaurants in the Chiado. Lots of the shopping is more geared towards the big multinational corporations but you can find some local artists and shops if you look hard enough.

Nice area of Lisbon, quite cosmopolitan, full of colour and passion, you will find in some evenings live music from street artists, of course the area is not a cheap as other areas of Lisbon, but it does worth a visit, and a stop in particular to "A Brasileira" cafe.

Thank Portucale

Staying in Chiado & Carmo

Neighborhood Profile
Chiado & Carmo
The traditionally trendy "Chiado" (literally, "squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its streets, shops, art galleries, theaters, museums and viewpoints. It's also the home to the statue of the famous statue of portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa, having is usual espresso at "A Brasileira" as he used to. You can also enjoy breathtaking views of Lisbon from the Elevador de Santa Justa or the Carmo Convent, for example. A commercial neighborhood at its core, especially for its Garrett and Carmo streets, Chiado is to this day a mandatory visit in Lisbon.
