When investing in property one should always consider location, and what could be more worthy than Lisbon’s crowning jewel, Chiado. An important cultural and commercial district, known for its historic landmarks. Chiado has undergone a rehabilitation in recent years. This re-imagining honours its façades and spirit - flashing back when writers such as Fernando Pessoa and Eça de Queiroz used to write at the now iconic cafés.
Chiado starts down by the river, moves up Rua de Alecrim, rising to Principe Real through Praça Luís de Camões. Fuel up for the climb at Lisbon's gourmet food market Mercado da Ribeira and the renowned cinnamon-smelling pastel de nata shop Manteigaria - one needs extra energy for the hills of course. Praça Luís de Camōes and the Chiado shopping district are next. Visit the Vista Alegre store for Portuguese crockery and ceramics, and step into the world's oldest functioning bookstore Livraria Bertrand. Rua Garrett is the main street, with the Armazens do Chiado shopping mall at one end and A Brasileira Café at the other – a pair of iconic bookmarks for a collection of priceless shops. Speaking of crowing jewels. How about checking out one of the city’s most beautiful jewelry stores from 1909, now part of the Tous brand. Or check out one of Europe’s first elevators which was installed in the Ramiro Leão department store 4th floor - mirrored, gilded interior, and velvet upholstered.
