Nice place to walk and enjoy shops and also there are a lot of restaurants. But also keep in mind that the prices of these restaurants can be a little bit more expensive rather than other restaurants in town.

This huge square on the water is a must see and gives you the impression that Lisbon was once a city of the world. Take the time to walk around and take a few pictures.

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