  • This square is absolutely beautiful. Fountains, statuary, wavy cobblestones, lots of cafes, great people-watching. I wish we had had more time to spend more time.

  • Sharing Lisboa through my eyes of living in Portugal for the past 5 years...The city has a rich history with art, culture, food, music, and Saudade...It is both old and modern...Hidden gems on streets less discovered you find the locals who make the city what it is...Resident Cowboy and supporter of the economy of Portugal since 2016
  • Great fun at the Christmas Market. The usual suspects as far as stalls go, but really good selections of Christmas eat treats and of course my personal favourite- the Ginja stall 😄
  • Gorgeous place! Grandeur of Neo-Classical architecture of the Teatro National. Beautiful fountains on the different sides of the imperial statue of Dom Pedro lV. The wave-patterned mosaic of the square is magical. Rolling Motion Square, definitely. X-mas illumination and decoration - just fabulous. There are lots of souvenir shops and cafés here. X-mas market must not be missed!
  • Almost queue for the elevator but met a “friendly” local and showed us the shortcut, some small tips and got convenience in return 🤙🏻
