We went to the square on a lovely January day. It is a pretty square with beautiful fountains and pretty mosaics on the floor.

This is the central square in Lisbon and you can reach everywhere walking from there. The theatre is a beautiful building and it would be perfect if it wasn't for so many drug dealers trying to seel it to tourists!

This area of Lisbon and the rest of the old city in Bairro and Chiado are a must see when visiting Portugal! Get a glimpse of the old Portuguese empire and take in the beautiful views, grand statues and historic cafes!
