Lisbon on foot is the way to go, I'm glad that we ditched our rental car before coming here. This square is just another wonderful example of so much to see for pedestrians. Statues, fountains, beautiful inlaid tiles in the square, places to shop, or sit and soak in some more of beautiful Lisbon!

Wow, this square is a must visit! - it has beautiful fountains and is a landmark for sure. It has historic restaurants all surrounding the square, cafes and lots of interesting flooring. Great picture spot and great spot to set for a meeting point if you're traveling with others. There is an AMAZING RESTAURANT NEARBY it's called BELLAFISHA - it's... More

It is ok for short stroll but nothing amazing about that place. Be aware of pick pocketers, this is great area for them. Square it is ok but not the cleanest part of Lisbon, loads of homeless people, not the best part of Lisbon. I regret we stay here, if you coming to Lisbon do yourself a favour and stay... More

Praca do Rossio, in my humble opinion is one of the most beautiful places to see in Lisbon. The square, has been a witness to various historical events in the city, from popular celebrations and revolutions to executions and bullfights. When we visited there were literally hundreds of people from different places relaxing and just taking in the atmosphere.It was... More

A beautiful square with 2 lovely fountains and mosaic flooring. Lovely restaurants to watch the world. Unfortunately some of the atmosphere of the area is ruined by beggars and people selling items-sunglasses etc. Saw at least three guys selling drugs even though police were 50 yards away. Would be good if more attention was paid to these. Taxis/ metro close... More

The Square consists of 2 water fountains, a monument and plenty of pedestrian areas to walk. In the daytime it's lovely, at night i was offered coke, mdma, hash and ecstacy by at least 7 different men who then follow you for a while and shout at you when you've walked off. Not the nicest atmopshere and didn't bother me... More

It is quite central place from where one can go in any direction and enjoy different areas. Santa Justa Elevator, Tram 28 last stop, Rua Augusta (street), Alfama, Se Cathedral and many other things are very nearby.

The Rossio Square is in the busy center of the Gorgeous City of Lisbon. The Square was a highlight for us, because it has a enormous Mosaic on the ground, that is OUTSTANDING, and feels like the Ocean moving.. It felt strange to be walking on such a gorgeous work of art. We stayed there a long time. There are... More

The Rossio square is a pleasant place to spend a little time. There is an interesting monument and a number of shops nearby. Definitely worth walking through, but not really enough to warrant a long excursion. Safe travels!
