Great place to sit and have a drink and people watch. Drinks are a bit more expensive, but you are paying for the location.

Not just a square with a statue. The fountains and particularly their blue green colour are just beautiful.

This place is a bit of an oasis in the city. The statues and fountains are attractive, but it is the paving which stands out, literally! While it is not unique to Lisbon and this square, it does take some mental agility not to think...More

Once at Lisbon one cannot miss visiting Rossio. The great square is highlighted with the Neoclassical D. Maria Theater and dozens of restaurants that gives the place its own charm.

A large open square with a fountain at the centre, Really it's Pedro IV Square but commonly known as Rossio Square. The edges have shops and traffic.

Rossio Square is an important place in world history. It was here where so many refuges arrived in Lisbon between 1939 and 1945. When you stand on this square and look at the beautiful train station, you will feel like you are living history.

A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site,
Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply
"Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake
construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755
earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its
name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in
Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the
Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the
