Details

It is a traditional shopping area that mixes old and modern commercial establishments, mostly located at the Carmo and Garrett streets.[citation needed] The most well-known café of Chiado is "A Brasileira", famous for having had poet Fernando Pessoa among its customers, and today it is very popular among tourists. The Chiado is also an important cultural area, with several museums and theatres. In 1988, the Chiado area was severely affected by a fire, when 18 buildings were partially or totally destroyed.[1] Since then, owing to a renovation project coordinated by architect Álvaro Siza Vieira that lasted for more than 10 years, the affected area has recovered and features the highest real estate property prices in Portugal.
