Here you will find hotels, theatres, bookshops, museums, restaurants, famous Portuguese fashion houses and the famous haunt of personalities like Fernando Pessoa and Eça de Queiroz, in a location actually chosen by the city's art students: the café "A Brasileira". This area has that 'special something' and you can see it in the buildings and live it in the story of the 1988 fire. On the 25th of August 1988, Chiado was devastated by a fire that started in a store in Carmo Street and that spread to Garrett Street. Even though there are still some scars of that disaster, a massive renovation programme has brought todays Chiado back to life and it is better than ever!Largo de CamõesThe most important writer in Portuguese history and one of the preeminent European poets of the early modern era, Luís de Camões (1524–80) has been ranked as a sonneteer on par with Petrarch, Dante, and Shakespeare. Championed by such influential English poets as William Blake and Elizabeth Barrett Browning, and admired in America by Edgar Allan Poe, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and Herman Melville, Camões was renowned for his intensely personal sonnets and equally intense adventurous life. He was banished for duelling and brawling at court, lost an eye fighting the Moors in North Africa, was shipwrecked off the coast of India, jailed in Goa, and exiled in Mozambique. Throughout these personal trials, he advanced poetry beyond the Petrarchin model of love won and lost to write of personal despair, history, politics, war, religion, and the natural beauty of PortugalAssembleia da RepúblicaThe Palácio de São Bento is the home of the Assembly of the Republic, the Portuguese parliament. It is located in Lisbon, in the freguesia with the same name. The building had its origin in the first Benedictine monastery built in Lisbon, in the XVI century. As the order's local community grew, the monastery was transferred to the present location of Palácio de São Bento. When the construction works of the new building were almost finished, the destructive 1755 Lisbon earthquake severely damaged it. After the 1820s Liberal Revolution the Portuguese Parliament was installed in the building. It was subject of several improvements in the 1940s, during Salazar's Estado Novo regime, becoming a symbol of the nation. Since democracy became the political system of the country, after the 1974 Carnation Revolution, it is the most common place for a manifestation to be held.                  Includes:• Gastronomy tasting (Pastries of Belém),  and ginginha (cherry drink)• 1 Digital camera for each team  • “Road book” for each team A5 format, with allusive pictures of Lisbon• Glazed Tiles for the winner team• Staff from the organization Place:Lisboa.
