And it is in this atmosphere that you will find the Chiado Emenda apartments, the perfect accommodation to calmly dive into the magic of this area.

Chiado: a meeting with inspiration
Chiado has long been one of the most attractive places for Lisbon intellectuals. Many of the cafes that fill the neighbourhood with life have served as the stage for artistic gatherings that have become famous throughout the metropolis. Some of the protagonists of these debates were immortalized in these streets. The most notable example is that of Fernando Pessoa.
We speak of one of the most photographed bronze figures in the country: the sculpture of the poet, by Lagoa Henriques, who is at the door of the mythical cafe A Brasileira. Here, you can sit at one of the tables and ask for a “bica” where, in the 1920s, the author of Mensagem used to spend part of his day. It is certainly a journey through time!
But the encounter with art and culture does not stop there. Walking along the beautiful Rua Garrett, which ends in the cosmopolitan Armazéns do Chiado, you must enter Bertrand, considered by Guinness World Records to be the oldest bookstore in the world still in operation. This space opened its doors in 1732 and continues to be a must-visit place, especially for book lovers, and for the curious who want to feel the rooms and corridors of this page of history which makes the city proud.
At the door of culture
In the vicinity of the Chiado Emenda apartments, there are many cultural spaces where you can learn, laugh and dream. This is the case with the renowned National Museum of Contemporary Art, created in 1911 with the mission of exhibiting the most avant-garde art. There, you will find works created between the second half of the 19th century and today.
But there are more suggestions for those who like to surround themselves with art. In the heart of Chiado lives the São Luís Theatre, open to the public since 1894; it is one of the biggest centres for Lisbon’s cultural life. Likewise, this area serves as the address of the São Carlos Theatre. Inaugurated in 1793, this remains the only national theatre dedicated to the representation of opera.
From your accommodation, it will be easy to stroll through very popular areas of the city. Visit Bairro Alto, known for its lively nightlife; Príncipe Real, a very cosmopolitan and lively neighbourhood; or the area that lies next to the Tagus River, perfect for relaxing and inspiration. Therefore, conditions are made for an unforgettable experience!
