Statue of poet Fernando Pessoa in front of Cafe Brasileira, Lisbon, Portugal

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

This is the city's most famous cafe, opened in 1905 with a magnificent art nouveau decor and known for the intellectuals who stopped by on a daily basis in the early 20th century. One of them was poet Fernando Pessoa, whose bronze statue (perhaps the most photographed in the country) stands amid the clientele of both young and old.

Fernando Pessoa, born Fernando António Nogueira de Seabra Pessoa ; June 13, 1888 – November 30, 1935), was a Portuguese poet, writer, literary critic, translator, publisher and philosopher, described as one of the most significant literary figures of the 20th century and one of the greatest poets in the Portuguese language. He also wrote in and translated from English and French.
