Designed as a long curve, which is necessary to travel to glimpse what lies on the other side, the Cal?ada de S?o Francisco, usual route of the No. 28 tram, is one of the most emblematic streets of Lisbon, so often photographed and immortalized notably in films by Wim Wenders and Alexander Sokurov, in addition to frequently be the setting for innumerous advertisements. Located in Chiado - the cosmopolitan heart of Lisbon, this sidewalk is born at the gates of do Largo da Academia Nacional de Belas-Artes - where since 1836 is the Academy, and currently is the Faculty of Fine Arts - and has been flowing into as a water flow in the grid of Baixa Pombalina, one of the most visited historical centers of the Portuguese capital, now a candidate for the UNESCO World Heritage. Built on successive landfills in the middle of the thirteenth century, the history of the Cal?ada de S?o Francisco is long and follows the evolution of the city itself. As its name indicates, the street was created to give access to the Convent of San Francisco of the City, a Franciscan church built in 1246 and soon expanded, which came to occupy a large area in the neighborhood now called Chiado. From its function as the access road to the "City of San Francisco" ? as the convent was then known, the Cal?ada de S?o Francisco became temporarily in the late nineteenth century the location for the air crossing of the city elevator, until the arrival in the first quarter of the twentieth century of the electric cars - the same that still today continues to cycle through the hills of the city. S. Francisco 6 The No. 6 building of the Cal?ada de S?o Francisco, now fully rehabilitated, is the result of a long and careful intervention aimed to contribute to the safeguarding and development of the Baixa as a living heritage. Rehabilitation is both to save what came to us from the past and renewing, rebuilding and updating what was not possible to preserve. The project of the Cal?ada de S?o Francisco, designed by the architect Edgar Neves was presented at the recent exhibition "Lisbon 1758 - The Plan for the Downton Today" along with other examples of currently developed in the area of Baixa-Chiado. Sponsored by the city of Lisbon and the Lisbon Tourism Association, the show came to mark the 250th anniversary of the Plan of the Downton and launch the network for the future of this area.
