Nice square, has things to see (such as the St. Domingo church) and buy around (such as cod fish which is very "big" in Portugal and cork goods such as shoes, bags, umbrellas etc). You can also enjoy an espresso in one of the many cafes there. If you are there you should take a shot of the local drink... More

Our bag was stolen for the chair just near us, at the McDonalds. Nobody, expect us, seemed to surprised... There was a long line of tourists reporting theft at the close-by tourist police office. On the way we were approached by a few drugs dealers... The CIty should take care of security much better!

This square is in front of the National Theater and contains two beautiful fountains and a column in the ceter. It is very nicely illuminated at night, especially the fountains. It is surrounded by numerous shops and restaurants

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!

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

It's a beautiful square with 2 fountains. You can find lots of shops, cafes and restaurants around the square. It's a main meet up point for the locals and tourists as well. If you are lost in the city, just follow Rossio and you can find your path back to wherever you are. Not far from here is the Rossio... More
