Chiado is the popular shopping and theatre district of Lisbon, which has a selection of historic monuments, tradition shops and interesting cafes and restaurants. Bairro Alto is not much to see by day but as the sun sets, the numerous small bars open and the partying continues late into the night. The unassuming exterior of the Igreja Sao Roque provides no indication of the exquisite and ornate interior. The church contains some of the finest examples of Portuguese Baroque religious art and designs, with gold leave covering all surfaces and alters of beautiful carved details. It is said that the Igreja Sao Roque has one of the most expensive alters ever constructed, which was transported to Rome to be blessed by the Pope, before being returned and rebuilt in Lisbon

“Over naked truth is a diaphanous mantle of fantasy”   – Eça de Queirós Inscription on statue

Slide28:

Eça de Queiroz was one of the most important Portuguese realism writers. Os Maias, O Crime do Padre Amaro and A Relíquia are just three of his many books. He lived during the second half of the 19th Century, and died in 1900, in Paris. In addition to being a fantastic writer, he was also a diplomat, representing Portugal in countries like Cuba or England. The statue of Eça, situated in the Chiado area, between the Cais do Sodré and the Bairro Alto, shows the writer holding a nude woman that symbolically represents the "truth." This piece is a bronze replica of the original sculpture that was removed after several acts of vandalism almost completely destroyed it
