Chiado had its origin in a medieval zone situated in the interior of
the walls. It is a local frequented by the modernist intellectuals that
propagated their ideas, chocking the Public Opinion with their attitudes
and today it is named as The Art of Lisbon City. Framed in a cosmopolitan
Lisbon, with a strong intellectual, liberal, modern and romanticist
component, Chiado is, without a doubt, an obligatory visit to the tourists.
