    A must-see for all Lisbon visitors. Take the tramway here to go to Belém. Take the lively Rua Augusta by passing through the Arc of Triumph. You can go up the arc for a wonderful view.

    In southeastern current of this square, there is a very nice museum about the history of the city. Very interesting, good sound system and a better understanding of the town through its past.

    The top of the Monumental Arch represents Glory crowning Genius and Valour. Beneath them are Viriatus, Vasco da Gama, the Marquis of Pombal and Nuno Álvares Pereira.

    Spaciousness, an open riverview, the castle rising up above the grand buildings, it makes this square unique! Always a cool breeze at the quayside. Beware of pooping seagulls, please DON'T feed them!

    Nice place....but be aware of the aftermath of new year celebrations, which is a nightmare to return as there is literally no taxi around. Either leave early or stay more until the crowd disperse

    It is a nice place, quite big I would say. I lik it very much but I feel it quite empty - probably is it mant to gather many people. I wouldn't go there on the afternoon of a hot summer day. ENJOY!!!

    Great place to walk around and lots of restaurants around! Fun fact: it's one of the biggest squares in Europe (280x280m).

    For an appetizer, try the pineapple-&-goat-cheese ravioli drizzled with a cherry-cardamom cream. For a main course, opt for lamb served with Algarvian orange chutney and a mix of field greens.

    The great "gate to the city"! Imagine descending from a boat on the Tagus and stepping up that place towards the big arc to enter the city.

    On 1 February 1908, the square was the scene of the assassination of Carlos I, the penultimate King of Portugal. So beautiful, but with a turbulent history!

    At the Centre stands a statue of King José I. Beneath him Fame leads an Elephant and Triumph leads a Horse, which trample on conquered Africa and Asia. In the front Medallion is the Marquis de Pombal.

    The tourist trap caffees are reasonably priced. At night you'll be offered all kinds of drugs next to the fountain.

    In May 2011 you have 3 coffees and two restaurants. All the coffees have outside tables. The two restaurants are pretty Nice and not so expensive. Mainly is modern portuguese food.

    It's a very big square and could be used for playing sports but it isn't. So it's just a square. Still beautiful though. It's probably in your tourist guide. You dirty tourist.

    Be aware that there are locals with certain substances that will approach you for such substances. None were aggressive at all, but it happens quite openly.
