After visiting Sao Roque and the Carmo ruins it was a pleasant square to sit and reflect with a snack before strolling downhill to Rossio There are several places selling hot and cold drinks, both alcoholic and non alcoholic and food. A good resting spot

This square was our favourite square in Lisbon. Of course we didn't see them all staying only one week, but for us this had everything. Beautiful trees, great bars and restaurants, historical buildings with an exceptional church ruin and the lovely construction of the Santa...More

This open square is a good place to have a rest after walking the steep alleys of Bairro Alto. The ruins of Convento do Carmo is next to the square.

Chiado & Carmo
The traditionally trendy "Chiado" (literally,
"squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers
plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can
stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its
streets, shops, art galleries, theaters, museums and
viewpoints. It's also the home to the statue of the
famous statue of portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa,
having is usual espresso at "A Brasileira" as he used
