Chiado, Lisbon

4.7
#2 of 198 in Shopping in Portugal
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.

    Living, shopping, chic neighborhood. Nice shops but also beautiful facades and narrow picturesque streets. Take time to wander aimlessly.

    Nice shops and enjoyable ride even though there are areas somewhat "crappy" as you approach the Bairro alto.

    A stroll through its streets is very nice, uncomfortable by its slopes but taste stale to recent history.

Where to stay in Lisbon

Check into one of Lisbon's grand city center hotels to position yourself well to explore the central historical districts on foot. To avoid the potentially high prices of some of the Old Town's central upscale hotels, try staying in a hostel instead. While some hostels have an upper age limit for their guests, they're affordable and oftentimes offer access to attractions on par with or better than bigger hotels. In the upper town, opt for one of the family-run bed and breakfasts, which provide affordable rooms and, as the name would suggest, include a meal as well.
