Fantastic waterfront plaza at the heart of Lisbon

Gorgeous Portuguese black and white cobblestone streets and magnificent 17th century palatial architecture abound here.

A great public square with nice places to eat and great photo opportunities. Apparently the biggest public square in Europe. Be sure to visit this if you are in Lisbon.

This is a large impressive square to see and has the advantage of having tram stops for many of the tram lines.

A very large square near the Tagus river and next to the bridge. Walking during the day is refreshing but cold at night. Be careful with drugs offers.

Walk around the stately arcades and bold yellow government buildings that line all three sides of this vast square. You may ask what is on the fourth side - the river with its marble stairs leading down to the water. This venue has no metro station so either use your car and use one of the carparks nearby or catch... More

This is a great walk towards the waterfront. There are entertainers, street performers and a lot of restaurants BUT they are expensive as they are in prime location. @instabuilt

One of the must nice places to visit in old Lisbon. Near to the Tejo River, with many old buildings to see, food to taste and some shopping too.

A nice place to walk and see, the square and nearby allies are very nice and easy to visit. Lots of tourists around with lots of touristic cafes and restaurants all around but be careful of the occasional pickpocket that shadows all the above. Really nice architecture to see, specially after some recent renovations been done.
