A great walking experience

A Must Visit! at night it is still a very busy place and the fancy stone work on the street and sidewalk floors shine like they have been waxed.

A big, spaceous square, where you have several nice cafés around it and a beautiful view of the river Tejo.

Always full of tourists but clean! Also some non-discrete dealers for any kind of illigal products but smart enough not to insist too much. Against all that? the view, the wind from the river, a smell of freedom thanks the "open" space and some very nice buildings around. Even nicer since the street along the river is forbidden for cars.... More

I would ignore the bars and restaurants in the area, too touristy for my taste, but a nice walk nevertheless - one of the must walks in Lisbon

A must visit in Lisbon and due to the central location a good point of orientation but the bars on the edges are all expensive touristtraps.

Great street with no cars, nice restaurants and many shops. The street was very crowded. Very popular a must to visit. It takes you down to the ocean.

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.
