    Rossio Square is a lovely square located in Central Lisbon.

    When we visited it was hosting the Christmas Markets There were many food and drink options at these markets.

    There is plenty of seating and fountains and surrounded by cafes bars and shopping and Rossio Train Station is quite nearby.

    This is my absolute favorite square in the city. The famous ruins of the big church area here, the remains of the collapse from the 18th Century earthquake. And it is a pretty square with a fountain and a lot of style and history. A couple of good restaurants, and two of them serve some food to tables in the square. We love to come here for coffee or drinks. Chiado atmosphere.

    There are twin ornamental fountain monuments at each end of Rossio Square (Praca Dome Pedro IV). They were erected in 1889 and add much charm to the square. What you see are green chalice shaped fountains with standing cherubs on the upper level along with seated allegorical figures beneath. Water spills into circular basins from which four mermaid like figures rise from the waters.

    The fountains are very nice to view during the day, especially when sky conditions are favourable. We have also enjoyed seeing these fountains in the evening when they are lit up with lights. The north fountain can be viewed with the attractive Dona Maria II National Theatre in the background. Depending on where you stand, you can also view the fountains with the impressive Dom Pedro IV Column which is centred between them.

    This is a charming late-Baroque style fountain in the centre of Largo do Carmo. It was built in the late 18th-century and features a centre pyramidal structure surrounded by dolphins with spouts spilling water into small raised basins below. It is surrounded by four raised columns connected by arches and a false dome topped with an urn.

    We enjoyed seeing Chafariz do Carmo before our visit to see the Convent ruins and archaeological museum. In a way, the fountain seems fit for this location, being something of a decorative resemblance to the old church ruins, especially the broken vault ribs you will see within. It is nice to see when sightseeing in the area.

    This is a splendid fountain in the middle of the park that is in the middle of the sites in the center of Belem. So if you go to Belem to visit the big sites, you will surely stop by to enjoy this pretty fountain and its park. A nice place to rest after your visit.

    This is one of the twin ornamental fountain monuments at each end of Rossio Square (Praca Dome Pedro IV), flanking the Dom Pedro IV Column. They were erected in 1889 upon the location of two water wells on the square.

    What you will see is a green chalice shaped fountain with standing cherubs in the middle along with seated allegorical figures beneath. Water spills into a circular basin from which four mermaid like figures rise from the waters. It is attractive and nice to see up close. The fountain on the other (north) end of the square is a twin and looks the same.

    The Lisbon sightseeing points are famous due to the huge diversity of views although the most visited ones are those close to the downtown. If you get close to this sightseeing point take a few minutes for appreciating the view, the beautiful fountain and the palace´s façade. Enjoy!

    There are several interesting monuments at Rossio Square including this replica Wallace Fountain (1882). Like the originals in Paris, it is dark green with classical image of four female figures representing - simplicity, kindness, charity and sobriety that are holding up a decorative dome from which drinking water flows for those in need. It is a charming fountain that you may recognise from seeing various other replicas placed around European capitals throughout the continent.

    Located at the far end of a small rectangular recess, opposite the National Museum of Ancient Art (Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga), the fountain seems somewhat forgotten. I suspect that its only visitors are some of the people who visit the museum opposite. I visited at night and the benches bordering the recess were occupied by courting teenage couples, more intent on each other than the fountain. The fountain itself is made of white and pink marble and stands upon a platform, accessed by climbing 5 steps. It is one of 18 fountains in Lisbon which received their water from the 18 Km long Águas Livres Aqueduct (Free Waters Aqueduct). On top of the fountain is a statue of Venus and Adonis with a dolphin.

    This fountain was built around the 12th century.

    It was to supply water to the fishing neighborhood of Alfama.

    The fountain previously had six spouts in the form of animal heads, each intended for a different social groups.

    The fountain has deteriorated due to the 1755 earthquake and only has three spouts left.

    It no longer operates as a fountain.

    This is a nice fountain in the middle of all of the sites in Belem and a place you will pass by if you arrive by streetcar. Not as important and picturesque as many of the big places, but still worth a quick look.
