Largo do Chiado, Lisboa, Portugal, 2002[open in full screen]  

 
 

Largo do Chiado and Praça Luis de Camões are two connected squares in the area dotted with elegant shops, cafés and “Casas de Fado”.

  From here you can enjoy a beautiful view from the intersecting street to the river Tagus in the distance. Nice proportions, lots of content, a space for people watching, interesting paving, and two monuments both to the famous Portuguese poets.   All of these factors make Largo do Chiado a very good example what can be done in a big city to preserve most of a square’s traditional values.

Photos bellow are from our 2017 visit.
