This is a very special place both as an interesting museum as well as an important remnant of the old city that existed before the big earthquake. And it's up on the hill with a great view, as well as on a gorgeous square in...More

What do you do when an earthquake ruins your cathedral? Well, you redefine the purpose! This is just a magical place, never seen one like it before. Walking under the blue sky while still seeing the arches of the roof, amazing!

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
