“Lively square to hang out in”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2012

The next one over from "Jesus Square", Praca da Se is the setting for one of the stages during Carnaval. Loud and fun, a good place to hang out and drink a beer or two during the festivities.

“Be aware of thieves at night”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2011

At night, be aware of thieves around the square. The light condition should be improved...
