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.

This is an overview of Lisbon

Capital, largest, and wealthiest city in Portugal and one of the leading economic centers on the Iberian Peninsula. Although located in the westernmost corner of Europe, the city is firmly embedded in the European Union, hosting a couple of EU agencies. Visit Baixa, the downtown city center and Alfama, the oldest district in the city or just chill out in one of Lisbon’s memorable parks – Parque Florestal de Monsanto, one of Europe’s largest urban parks or Parque Eduardo Vll, off the main drag. Last but not least, Lisbon plays host each September to the Lisbon Gay & Lesbian Film Festival - Queer Lisboa.
