This is the main spot in Lisbon. You can wander around, have a drink at one of the terraces or visit the Beer Museum. You can also sit at the ocean shore, enjoying the peace and quiet of the scenary.

Spacious, nicely built square in the heart of Lisbon, surrounded by spectacular buildings and monuments. It offers a beautiful, wide-angle view of the Tagus River. It is worth watching during the day and in the evening. It is easily accessible from St. Jerome’s Monastery by tram nr. 15.
Nice place to visit. It was home to Lisbon’s Royal Palace until the earthquake brought it to the ground on 1755. The palace now stands elsewhere, and this historical palace has been restored with ornate arches. You can enjoy an amazing view of the River Tagus standing from that spot.
