Rua António Maria Cardoso
+351 21 031 2810 (Tourist Information)
The 16th-century Portuguese poet, António Ribeiro was fondly known as 'Chiado', and it is from this source that one of Lisbon
's most iconic districts takes its name. Easily identified by the statue of António Ribeiro
that stands at the center of the square, Chiado is a must-visit on a trip to Lisbon
. The area has retained its historic charm, and establishments like Restaurante Tavares
have been in existence from the 18th Century. Although a fire raged through the district in 1988, it hasn't lost any of its appeal, and still remains one of the most popular shopping districts in the city. Rua Garrett and Rua Carmo are the two main shopping streets where you can find anything from apparel to pottery.
