Bairro do Chiado represents the alternative and bohemian Lisbon. It is located in the western part of Baixa de Lisboa, more specifically between Bairro Alto and Baixa Pombalina.
In 1988, it was completely rebuilt due to a fire that affected the neighbourhood.
You can reach Chiado from Praça dos Restauradores, with the Elevador da Glória or Elevador de Santa Justa. If you prefer to walk, going down the whole Baixa (downtown) on foot is an incredible experience.
Chiado has always been an emblematic part of Lisbon. It was the meeting point of the capital's greatest cultural figures and the home of fado. Today it is still one of the most traditional places with plenty of shops and cafés. It houses the famous A Brasileira café and the São Pedro de Âlcantara viewpoint. You can't visit Lisbon without visiting Chiado.
