“Huge, incredibly huge.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

It is one of the undisputed symbols of the city, I have to admit that this place has impressed me very much because of its size, is spectacular, large but after all in addition to a few statues there is not much to see.
However, it is one of those places in the city that sooner or later you're going to visit.

“Tradition and History”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

Do not miss Praça do Comércio and search for the history of this beautiful located and well serviced site in Lisbon. In the night it is still without the final lights project, still to be installed (as we were told), so, try to visit during the day.

“Renewed and Work in Progress”
4 of 5 bubbles 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”
1 of 5 bubbles 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.
