Gorgeous square with lots to do. Lots of restaurants with beautiful food and drinks. There is also lots of shops including local shops and high street shops. The square is great to visit day or night. The square looks onto a harbour which is also a lovely place to take a walk and grab a cocktail.

Passing one of the lively streets to get to the Praca do Concelho. If you through the high arch gate, you would get to the magnificent square.

There is a metro right by here. It is worth going to see at least once. The area is very big and pretty. One side is by the water and the other side is close to shopping and eating.

lots of shops, restaurants and cafes, pedestrian zone with roads cutting across. the route leads to Terreio do Paco the large square on the other side of the arch. 2 sides of the square has bars and restaurants along with the Museu da Cerveja (Beer Museum). You also have good views up and down the river Tagus.

Staying in Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores

Neighbourhood Profile
Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
