Statues, fountains, imposing buildings are all located in and around this square that is covered in limestone (white) and black cobblestones in patterns. Can't wait to see the fountain at night.

Was the center of medieval Lisbon. Center of activity, sorry to say, of the Inquisition and it's many tortures. Pedro IV statue here is very interesting. Another statue is of Gil Vicente, the Shakespeare of Portugal

earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its
name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in

If your question is in terms of security, I don’t think you should be concern. There are drug dealers but it’s not a conflictive area
