Chiado can be described as Lisbon’s Montmartre, the bohemian and elegant Lisboa in its essence. Baixa-Chiado is the downtown of the city, and unveils itself over a hill, with several historical cafes, fashionable boutiques and notable visitor attractions.

What are the top things to do in Chiado?

The cosmopolitan ambiance of Chiado flashes back to the “Belle Époque” when Fernando Pessoa and Eça de Queiroz, famous portuguese writers, used to get inspiration at the now-historic cafés. Being an important cultural area, Chiado is also home for theaters, bookshops and major international brands.

Visit the church that survived the earthquake

Popular for its art and history, São Roque Church is one of the few buildings that survived the 1755 earthquake, practically without a scratch! Inside the white washed church and adjoined museum are some of the finest examples of Jesuit art. This church is definitely worth a peek, even if you’re not religious. The interior will make you feel totally immersed into soul.

Have a “bica” with Fernando Pessoa

Café A Brasileira, one of Europe’s best historic cafés, according to The Telegraph, is where the famous poet Fernando Pessoa used to have his morning coffee. You can either order a meal or a coffee, and take a seat next to the bronze statue of the poet for a typical picture with this remarkable literary figure.

As you go down the Garret street, full of stores and boutiques, you will enter Armazéns do Chiado, a small, quirky mall. You will find locals shopping here, anytime of the week!

Count the bottles at By the Wine restaurant
 

One of the best places for a wine and a quick bite is this flagship store, that marries the concepts of a wine bar and a wine store, with all of the company’s products and brands. More than 3200 bottles cover the ceiling, as part of the space’s impressive decor!

Enjoy the panoramic city views and the Carmo Church ruins

The Santa Justa Lift has a stunning observation deck and offers dazzling views over Baixa. It is the quickest way to get to the graffiti-slashed streets of Bairro Alto, and like the vintage funiculars that run-in Portugal’s capital, this lift is not only a convenient means of transportation, but has also become a popular tourist attraction.

The ethereal arches of Carmo Church, also make these ruins worth a look. The show “Lisbon Under Stars”, held outside, is a visual arts extravaganza that tells the history of Portugal and the church through technical lights.

Investidor de Marrocos

Ryan was an excellent real estate agent, he really steered me in the right direction based on what I said was important to me. Living in another country, I wasn't as familiar with the city as he is. Where I thought I wanted to live and what I truly wanted were not the same. He took the time to listen and figure out the best spot for me, and we are very happy with it - far more than we would have been elsewhere.
