Back in the 16th century, monk-turned-satirist António Ribeiro took up residence in this square, and gained the nickname Chiado. It commemorates its namesake with an excellent bronze statue of the man in the centre. The square is one of Lisbon’s historical hearts. Settled since antiquity, it is now the prime real estate.
