Chiado

Elegance and tradition

Since the 19th century, artists and intellectuals have met in this area, as the Opera house and the Academy of Fine Arts were just around the corner.

Furthermore, the oldest bookshop in the world, Livraria Bertrand, has been a meeting point for many generations in the busiest street of Chiado: our very own Rua Garrett.

At the same time, its trendy side hasn’t been neglected: it has been a milestone for fashion for a long time. From the Selfrige’s style old department stores, sadly destroyed during a fire back in the 80’s, to the top brands that currently chose to open there, Chiado has always been the place to go for some fine shopping.

Keeping the high quality standards of the area, several renowned chefs also choose the area to open their top quality and contemporary restaurants.

In Chiado’s case, we might open an exception for wearing high heals in Lisbon. It deserves it.
