Camões Square

Lisbon's Meeting Place



Praça do Camões, Lisbon


This small square is the transition zone between Chiado and Bairro Alto.
In its center is a monumental statue of 16th-century epic poet Luis de Camões standing on a pedestal with other smaller statues of classical Portuguese authors. Behind it is a historical kiosk serving traditional Portuguese refreshments.

It faces Largo do Chiado, where there are two Baroque churches: Loreto (also known as "of the Italians") and Encarnação.
Here is also Lisbon's best-known café, A Brasileira, a meeting place of several generations of intellectuals and artists.
In front is a statue of poet Fernando Pessoa sitting in a chair, recalling the days when he used to write at this café.
