“Great people watching”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

Huge square surrounded by restaurants and on weekends a small market of local artists selling their creations. You can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner in any of the many restaurants and get a suntan on one side of the square in the morning and on the other in the afternoon. The statues and the arch to Rua Augusta are beautiful.

“A huge and lovely square.”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

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.

“A Big Plaza and it seems like the place people want to sell drugs in”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

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.
