The bewigged marquess sits on his monument in the middle of this enormous square. It's this sort of place that reminds one that rather than being the vibrant, modern, multicultural country it now is, Portugal was once the centre of a vast empire whose wealth came back to the mother country.

It's a centre for all, train, bus and traffic connections. It's not a place to sit and relax because of the traffic, but somewhere to come and marvel about a Lisbon that was in the past.

We stayed about 3 blocks from this square at the Sana Capital, and it is a good place to go anywhere. Buses to anywhere from here, metro underneath, same thing. You can walk DOWNHILL from here to the river through tree shaded parks and some of the nicest plazas. Or you can walk uphill from the statue toward the flag and see a very nice park with a good view from the top. From there the Cortes Ingles is about two blocks to the right.

Lisbon authorities have change the traffic option in this square, and now the traffic jams are even worst than in the past. Literally a bouble rounded plaza that may give you plenty of headaches during the weekdays..
