Rossio Square is large, busy with traffic, many bus stops and that signature Lisbon paving. A large fountain in the centre which unfortunately wasn't operating during our visit. There are also other statues and monuments but none that I could tell you about. Other than...More

This Square is right in the centre of Lisbon. Plenty of impressive statues, and the square surrounded by architecturally beautiful buildings. Lots of shops surrounding the square also. Enjoy!

Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site,
Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply
