The Chiado was the city's department store district (Rua do Carmo and Rua Garret) before the 1988 fire. Since its renovation by architect Alvaro Siza Vieira, well-known international names have moved into the area, although its bookshops and some old shops have remained. Between the buildings are pleasant patios with café terraces.
