Reviewed July 27, 2013

Went to lunch at Praça do Comércio or Páteo da Galé (the new name).
Beautiful people and nice places around the square.
Beautiful view of Tagus (Tejo in Portuguese) river.

In Lisbon do not miss!

“under renovations June 2013”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

What a huge disappointment. I was hoping to enjoy the square over a meal with my family but it is entirely under wraps of scaffolding and plastic mesh! Too, too bad - it is usually lovely.

There's really beautifull and so enormous! It makes you feel small (in a good way)

“Presently under renovation, still grand”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Since we were spending more than a week in Lisbon, we knew we had to see Praca do Comercio and Lisbon's downtown. The fact that the square is under renovation was a bit of a bummer, but you can still take in the magnificent seascape there - it reminds me very much of Venice's Piazza San Marco in that respect.

And while the statue and triumphal arch, two things one would photograph automatically, are the very items under renovation, the placards that cover them give lots of information about the square and the statue's construction, which is very cool.

And of course Praca do Comercio is a meeting point of sorts - since were staying in Alfama and wanted to get to Santos and Belem, we came to the Praca to get the #15 tram a couple of times.
