#113 - Rua do Carmo

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Rua do Carmo it's a relatively small artery but of great commercial importance, due to the proximity of areas like the Rossio and Bairro Alto. There are shops of international brands and some other, traditional and very old. After the Fire do Chiado the end of the 80 the street went through a period of decline, but has revitalize itself since the reopening of the old warehouses of the Chiado, in the form of a modern commercial center, and today is a major shopping streets of Lisbon.

This is another street cut to transit. The car sales fado music.

Lindo passeio por aqui.
Esse olhar por ruas e construções.
Há em Lisboa uma outra cor, uma outra luz.
