A very pretty square in the center of the Baixa Chiado, near the water. Trams run through. Restaurants and bars nearby. Classic architecture.

Going back to this square it has not changed at all and remained not very interesting. However, its surroundings are still nice for an evening on the town or just for a stroll.

Praca do Municipio is a small and quiet square on Santa Maria Maior. Apart from a few statues and column on the square, there is a coffee kiosk and government buildings surrounding.

"Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake
construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755
earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its
name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in
