The area
Neighborhood: Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "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 Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!

Galerias Romanas da Rua da Plata is a tourist attraction in central Lisbon is open for European Heritage days. You can register with the Museum of Lisbon on their face book page to request a subscription to view.

Viewing slots are limited so you have to plan ahead, not something that you can see by chance.

Wake up at 7, arrived at 8, they opened at 10 and maked a line till 11:20, once in there took 20 minutes of tour. You can take really good pictures down there, you dont need to take special shoes or nothing, its clean and dry on most parts of it. The place isnt that big, but its worthed making the line for such an exclusive tour that only a few persons in the whole world have the priviledge to do. Its small place, under the ground so is not recommended if you cant be in closed places. Its very safe inside and they will provide you general information of the acueduct once down there, my recommendation is to arrive at 7 am since when i arrived at 8 there where maybe 200 persons in front of me and when i left there where maybe 800 behind me. They close the line at 8 so they can tour everyone, so dont even plan on going late in the day. Reccomended to go with someone that can keep the place once you are waiting in line, i went by myself and i regret since i couldnt buy nothing or go to the bathroom or nothing because i would lose my spot on the line.

Exclusive visit to "galerias romanas da baixa". This attraction only open twice a year. You have to book it 1 month earlier. It is a roman underground system used to support the city in 1st century. It is not a long gallery as it is truncated by some walls.

Hi if you are going to Lisbon, this is a fairly new attraction that if you are prepared to queue well worth a visit, so I'm told, you get to it from the street via a manhole, which is not for the faint hearted, the tour takes about 20mins all underground through caverns, etc. We ran out of time to do it and the queue on a sunday when its free was miles long, its opens from 10.00am - 5.00pm but be warned very busy, as only a few can enter at any one time, enjoy and let me know if you go down !!!!!!!!!!!!

One of the few obvious remnants of the Roman period in Lisbon, these caverns provide clear evidence that there was an ancient city here. Located under the money museum and worth a visit.

This year the dates are in April and September. So if you are visiting Lisbon in September and have interest in this attraction pay attention to the site of the Museu de Lisboa" to see the correct dates. You must book the time of your visit in the site. No more endless queues.

As to the gallery there is a lot o theories about. The most likely is that it was the foundations of a roman forum or a market.

It is a very small atraction, in 10 minutes or less it is done...it is nothing special, except for the historical meaning, of course...

I only opens a few days a year and the waiting is too long...
