This area starts down on the river and goes up hill from there. (everything in Lisbon is either up hill or down!) The entrance is a wonderful old yellow building that used to be a palace with an archway that you walk under...lots of shops and tourists...get a few blocks off the beaten path and that is fun too.

One of the biggest squares in Europe... Even though there are a lot of people you can keep feel the spaces that surrounds you... Is the central square of Lisbon on the Tejo River surrounded by the Republican palaces...

This area is very close to the shopping stores in Lisbon. The plaza itself is surrounded by typical old buildings that made it impressive. Surrounding the plaza there are a lot of restaurant around. Across the plaza, there is a long street contains many famous brand stores.

This ranks with the other squares in Europe for a must go visit. Right off the water, full of cafes and performers, the Lisbon story Center and Lisbon Shop.. Go to a cafe and watch the people...

Although the area is worth a visit and Lisbon is great, I had the feeling that I was wandering through a suburb in the tenth biggest city of France/Spain/Italy. The streets were dull with just uninteresting shops, restaurants and hotels. And not to forget, gift shops with countless useless rubbish. I hate to say this, but after seeing a few... More

We got down here a couple of time during our stay-- at sunset for some great pictures, on a Saturday to see everyone out for a promenade. It is on the way or near to so many places, that it is easy to pass more than once.

A beautiful square next to the river. There are some cafe and restaurants. You should go to the square at sunset. There are amazing views.

It's a lovely place, a huge square on the waterfront comes the entrance under the enormous arch. There are several streets of shops, restaurants and bars, and it's a very good way to spend an afternoon :)
