If you are a porcelain lover, just go to Chiado and enjoy this more than excellent crystal and porcelain shop, an historical Portuguese Brand, with the most beautifull and excellent hand made porcelain. Justo go in... you will adore it!

"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,
