Very pretty, iconic and interesting. Lovely old streets leading to the fabulous Commercial Square, with its bars, restaurants, trams and access to the river. Very much worth a visit and a highlight of any trip to Lisbon. Lots of lovely pastelerias to taste the famous Natas and lots of nice places to get a cool beer on a hot day.... More

We wound up here several times, sometimes by accident and sometimes by design. Plenty to do and see... Shops, stalls, street performers, bars, and restaurants... and statues, and the waterfront, and...oh well, you get the idea! Never boring, that's for sure!

This square is very beautiful, it is next to the sea so it's quite windy, but it's really beautiful. We went there at least 3 times and it's majestic.

definitely worth visiting in Lisbon, gorgeous place. I also recommend the cafe, which is apparently the oldest Cafe in Lisbon, and to eat the pastel de nata there, a typical portuguese pastry

a (small) protest by prison workers was in swing when we entered the square - democracy in action in a great setting.

Beautiful spacious square open to Tagus river at one side; on the other side, you will step through the arch and find yourself in a nice street (pedestrian zone) with many little cafes, restaurants... Take your time to walk around, explore, enjoy amazing architecture and of course - people.

A truly majestic space right by the river. A must if you are in Lisbon. It's large and lined with stunning bright yellow buildings as you enter by the stunning Arc de Triumph. You can stop off at the restaurants there and dine al fresco if the sun is out before heading off somewhere else for more sumptuous sightseeing in... More
