Cultural Grab Bag

Lisbon's city center is home to two neighborhoods that meld together into one: Baixa (literally "downtown") and Chiado, just up the hill. Baixa's tight grid plan is a great place to get lost and take in the atmosphere. Chiado promotes the “high life” with elegant cafes and high-end shops, while somehow embodying the quintessentially Portuguese laid-back attitude. Watch out for some of the area’s biggest attractions: the Convento do Carmo is a beautiful medieval church in a state of ruin; the Teatro Nacional São Carlos echoes the immaculate architecture of those grand theater houses of Milan and Naples; and the Santa Justa Elevator offers Neo-Gothic architecture and great city views. Shoppers will have a heyday anywhere in this area, but Rua Garrett has some of the best options.
