This is a pleasant statue on Rua Garrett in the middle of the shopping and cafes. People pose for a photo. An important Portuguese writer.

Really? This, the famous Portguese capital city, has this as an iconic landmark?. Honestly, that truly sums up the massive disappointment that is Lisbon. The stories far outweigh the reality which is that this city can be safely removed from people's travel checklist

In all honesty you must have your picture taken here. Everyone who visits Lisbon takes a picture of Pessoa statue set in front on one of Lisbons most famous coffee shops.

I loved the sculpture of Fernando Pessoa with its humoristic statement in the middle of the busy city of Lisbon. As a tourist you appreciate those nice spots for taking pictures.

Chiado & Carmo
The traditionally trendy "Chiado" (literally,
"squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers
plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can
stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its
streets, shops, art galleries, theaters, museums and
viewpoints. It's also the home to the statue of the
famous statue of portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa,
having is usual espresso at "A Brasileira" as he used
