The Chiado is located between the neighbourhoods of Bairro Alto and Baixa Pombalina.
It is a traditional shopping area that mixes old and modern commercial establishments, mostly located at the Carmo and Garrett streets. The most well-known café of Chiado is "A Brasileira", famous for having had poet Fernando Pessoa among its customers, and today it is very popular among tourists. The Chiado is also an important cultural area, with several museums and theatres.
In 1988 the Chiado area was severely affected by a fire, when 18 buildings were partially or totally destroyed. Since then, owing to a renovation project coordinated by architect Álvaro Siza Vieira that lasted for more than 10 years, the affected area has recovered and features the highest real estate property prices in Portugal.

A keenly framed composition that works perfectly. The elegant lamp makes a good anchor point for the equally elegant façade with its intricate tile decoration. Superb colours and sharpness.

Je prévois aller y faire un petit tour l'an prochain.J'ai bien hâte de voir ces maisons qui semblent fabriquées de dentelle colorée. Le lampadaire à lui seul valait la photo.

Wonderful architectural detail here, the tiles are gorgeous indeed. The portrait orientation gives a good clue at the size of the building.

For someone like myself that enjoys pattern and shape, this is terrific! Throw in some additional design from the lamp and balconies iron work, and you've got yourself a very attractive and enticing image. :) I like the angle too, giving it added appeal and character. Well spotted, well composed and well executed. Bravo!

I love the way you combined the perspective with the tight framing, your composition is very elegant and attractive. The architecture is presented through a very appealing graphism and the lamp stands out in a striking way introducing great depth. Sharpness, light and colours are excellent. The beautiful decoration and the rhythm of open and closed windows create a fine vibrancy exalted by your framing. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,
