lovely open space where you can meet up easily with others, find somewhere to eat as it is beside the main restaurant quarter of Lisbon, while there are also plenty of shops nearby as well.

It's a beautiful sqare to stroll around and meet people or just wait for the tour you've booked. Cute cafes and restaurants, as well as shops around.

Downtown, the square in Central Station of Rossio, surrounded by the old buildings of Lisbon. Nice place to stop and have a rest.

This is a large open square in the center of Lisbon busy day and night. The island in the center has a couple of large fountains. Several outdoor cafes line the sidewalks of the square. But really, this is a place I usually just pass through on my way to somewhere else.

Beautiful square in the center of Lisbon. Doubt any tourist would miss this site as its dead center. Nice cafes and beautiful fountain. Wonderful spot to take photographs.

Nice enough part of the city statues and fountains, shops and restaurants all fairly good but the blatant drug sellers even in the middle of the day are some what irritating after the initial wow he is quite blatant thought.

This square is located centrally and close to the train and metro stations. It a wide square that has an interesting design on the ground. As well as fountains and statues. I wish however that there were more things happening here like perhaps shops or even restaurants that look out into the square as it felt like it was missing... More

Hashish, cocaine...Hashish, Cocaine....Sunglasses. That's all you'll get from this square. Not impressive compared to lots of other cities, went passed it everyday as hotel was near by, nearly gave it 1 star

That's one hell of a title for a review, yes? It's the history nerd in me coming out. But it's true. This was once a place for public hangings. Now, it's a big old square in front of the train station with a McDonalds and a ton of guys roaming the edges trying to sell you weed or jewelry. At... More

Take some time to sit at the famous Cafe Suisse, take an espresso café and watch the world go by, and just about all the World comes through this lovely square. It’s recently been fully renovated and its one of the must not miss sights of Lisbon. Walk down the Avenida da Liberdade and you will find yourself in the... More
