Me and my friends watched the finals of the 2018 world cup in this square, together with tens of thousands of fans, and had a great time. The atmosphere, the beautiful buildings around the square and the statues inside it added festivity to the event,

This is a busy street with loads for you to see, well worth a visit and leads to a beautiful main square by the river or at the other end a quaint small square.

A landmark of the reconstruction of Lisbon after the earthquake is an open space with shops, restaurants, river views. Pleasant, uncrowded for being a large space. Part of the Lisbon itineraries.

An enjoyable way to spend time taking a walk. There are lots of interesting stores and restaurants and you can always find something interesting on one of the side streets
