I grew up in Lisboa and this area used to be a dusty, packed parking lot. To be able to enjoy the beautiful views of this city without that chaos, truly is wonderful.
We were lucky to stop by while the market was open. The...More
I can not believe how lucky we were to book this place for our 4 days holiday. Our first visit to Lisbon for just 4 days and a much needed break with my other half being very particular about standards of hotel and not wanting...More
Tuesday 9th October we were walking about exploring and sightseeing in Lisbon and we came across this busy Square in centre of Lisbon, Praça Figueira - Fig Tree Square.
Within the Square is a statue that commemorates King John 1 of Portugal (reviewed separately).
Half of this public square is occupied by an outdoor market that sells tasty foods and drinks. I tried out the sandwiches and the sangria on more that one of my five days in Lisbon. There is a Metro stop right in the square; there...More
We went to the square to pick up the bus tour but once we discovered the market we had to come back. At lunch time it was busy and we were lucky to grab a table. There’s a fab selection of meats and cheeses and...More
Located next to Rossio square, this square houses a great little market (don't recall what day) and is the place to go to get a Tuk Tuk to the castle.
With so many, makes it a little easier to negotiate a good rate.
There was a market there during our stay. We got some really great local food and it was great to mingle with locals after the ‘wall to wall tourists’ (ourselves included) experience of an open top bus.
Great fare and a nice atmosphere.
There’s not much to see at Fig Tree Square (Praça da Figueira). Mostly an open square with a modest sized statue of King John I in the middle and a lot of traffic around it. Not really worth searching out.
On some days of the week this square has busy food and merchandise stalls - in the middle. There is a large selection of things to buy and eat. Nice leather goods and a lot of local foods.
You can also catch many buses and...More
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"!
Sorry I don't have the right answer... but I was there again last week (on a Friday) and it wasn't there! So I believe that it might be seasonal (maybe summer school vacations time only?). Hope somebody knows :)
