The shops, the historical cafes, the marvelous restaurants, the "elevadors" to the top, the churches, this is the center of town. Easy and safe to walk around. People are friendly and hospitable. Please be careful with the slippery sidewalks not safe for some shoes. Saw 2 motorcycles accidents due to illegal street crossings.

Lots of people from different corners of the world were there, some taking photos, some simply smoking and drinking, some playing music, some laughing out loud. We sat in a bench near by the road watching the road and how hazardly Portuguese drive the cars in these kind of places where the lanes are hardly visible. You'll see taxi stopping... More

We stayed in Chiado for eight nights and it was centrally located to everything in Lisbon. We did day trips to other cities (Sintra, Univ of Coimbra, Evora) within two hours of Lisbon and it was very easy.

This traditional borough of Lisbon was famous for their fine shops. When part of Chiado was burnt in a fire over 20 years ago, the shopping target shifted to Amoreiras shopping center. The burnt Chiado was rebuild and adapted itself to new interests. It still remains its charm and is an expensive living área.

This area has everything to charm a tourist. Shops, fado theatres, restaurants, cafes and "Miradouro Sao Pedro de Alcantara". We walked up starting from Baixa and listening fado in "Fado en Chiado" , ended up taking shots from the Miradouro Sao Pedro de Alcantara. It is a must visit in Lisbon.

Chiado is mostly a commercial neighbourhood in Lisbon at Rua Garrett and nearby streets. It is situated between Bairro Alto and Baixa districts. In this area of the city you'll find quite a few international and local retail shops, plenty of restaurants, bars and cafes as well as nice squares and attractions worth seeing. Attractions we enjoyed include the architecturally... More

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.
