Praça Luis de Camões

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 cafe.
