Owner description: One of the biggest squares in Europe, this stylish area in downtown Lisbon often displays beautiful works of art and sculpture, and is a great place for a leisurely stroll.

This is a huge square, which is also called "Palace square" by the locals, as the royal palace was located here once.

Nowadays, it's a vast square with a lovely statue of King José I in the middle and a stunning triumphal arch in the north.

There are several cafés and restaurants in the square and it also offers numerous public transportation options (trams, buses and metro).

There are numerous photo-ops in the square, especially when it is dramatically lit in the evenings.

We walked around,and had a few drinks. It was raining cats and dogs sadly, but we still enjoyed it. Go and have a look the city and people are fantastic.

A big, open plaza that looks nice but was empty and nothing going on while we were there. Looks really good and a pleasant photo opportunity but no I don't want to buy any drugs thanks!
I don't think I look like a druggie but was approached at least 4 times in 30mins asking if I wanted to buy drugs.

An ample square in the center of Lisbon, oriented towards to the river with big arcades.
Have a drink at one of the bars at the sides of the square or just take a panorama photo of the square. Mostly enjoyable during summer and in warm nights.

You feel the breath of Lisboas history, when at the Praca do Comercio. And its not only the momuments and statues, but also the plinths near the water and the feeling of Lisboa's lost wealth and current economical situation that you sense here. Do go, you wont regret it!
