#120 - Largo do Chiado

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Largo do chiado and praça luis de camões are two connected squares in the area dotted with elegant shops, cafés and “casas de fado”. From here you can enjoy a beautiful view from the intersecting street to the river tagus in the distance, nice proportions, lots of content, a space for people watching, interesting paving, and two monuments. All of these factors make largo do chiado a very good example what can be done in a big city to preserve most of a square’s traditional values.[*]

This is gorgeous!! I could go for a nice cup of coffee, Lisbon style, while sitting outside watching people ... and sneaking a photo every once in awhile! I'm in love with Lisbon!
