Chiado, Lisbon

(4.7/5 based on 5,500+ reviews on the web)
Shop at traditional and modern establishments in Chiado, the popular neighborhood that has existed since Roman times. Chiado Square and its surrounding area make up this district and are known for their lively shopping streets, especially the popular Carmo and Garrett streets. As you explore the square, look for Costa Mota's bronze statue of poet Antonio Ribeiro. Spend time at one of the neighborhood's lovely cafes; some are known for famous customers, including poet Fernando Pessoa. While the area was greatly affected by a fire in 1988, most of its buildings have been restored in an ongoing restoration project. Work out when and for how long to visit Chiado and other Lisbon attractions using our handy Lisbon holiday planner.

  • I loved meeting the Chiado. It certainly is the most charming part of the city. Next to the Tagus River, full of cafes and bars and with an incredible story

  • We spend necessarily because Chiado is at the center of everything, and includes a lot of points of interest: the convent of the Carmelites, Place Rossio, los Restauradores, the elevator's Place, and so on. There are also many shops and restaurants (that said to avoid the restaurants in the main streets, often grab-tourists), there is also the station... short you will understand a central area, just behind the Praça do Comerico, very pretty with its cobbled streets, and not miss under any pretext, day and night!

  • Very nice location. Worth coming by train or tuc tuc. Good bakeries, for a change, busy weekends.
