Choose a holiday apartment in Lisbon ChiadoThe Chiado district of Lisbon is an upmarket area which is filled with fashion boutiques, bookshops, theaters, cafes and restaurants. Visitors choose to stay in Chiado apartments so that they can have all of this and more on their doorstep. Some people say that Chiado is like a phoenix rising from the ashes, as much of this area was destroyed by a devastating fire in 1988, but it has since undergone rapid redevelopment to become a thriving and economically important part of Portugal's capital city.
Sightseeing in Chiado is particularly fun for book lovers, as the area contains statues of several famous literary greats, including Fernando Pessoa, who is considered one of Portugal's greatest modern poets. Chiado also has several beautiful churches, such as the baroque church Igreja do Loreto. Visitors who climb up the double stairway to enter this building will be inspired and impressed by the church's exquisitely decorated interior.
Fashionable Chiado is a hotspot for shopping. There are many independent fashion boutiques offering unique designs to their customers. Celebrated Portugese designer Ana Salazar has a shop on Rua do Carmo which offers a unique shopping experience to fashion afficionados who want to buy high-quality women's clothes made from comfortable, natural materials.
Chiado Restaurants and Cafes
The most famous cafe in Chiado is probably the A Brasileira, which was opened in 1905. Fernando Pessoa, whose bronze statue stands outside, used to come here to write and take his inspiration from the scenes of Portugese life happening all around him. In the evening, a good place to eat is Taberna do Chiado, a traditional tavern offering local dishes such as roasted vegetables, meat pate, and bacalhau (salted cod). After a delicious meal, holidaymakers can either return to their Chiado apartments to relax in comfort, or head out to enjoy the nightlife of this lively area.
Holiday apartments in Lisbon are a fantastic choice for anyone looking to explore this exciting city. Chiado apartments offer convenience, privacy, and comfort to anyone wanting to take their holiday in the Chiado district and make the most of all the attractions that this area has to offer.
