I have the idea that Buenos Aires is like Chiado - but I never went ! - I'd love the shopping venue mixed with souvenir shops, restaurants... You feel that you can breathe ! Unlike Saint Michel in Paris : Chiado is open with large streets, the sky is everywhere.

Get lost in these historical streets. Great ambiance and don't miss the Fernando Pessoa statue sitting in front of a restaurant. One of my favorite poets, it was for me a very pleasant surprise.

You won't possibly miss Chiado when you are in Lisbon because it's a popular district for locals and tourists.

We enjoyed walking around Chiado. There were a number of museums on our Lisbon Card in this district. We particularly enjoyed the modern art museum.

This upmarket shopping area in Lisbon is a frequent stop-off for anyone visiting the city. Having a bica (espresso coffee) and pastry at the Brasileira restaurant is an institution in Lisbon.

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.
