  • A large and well cared square. It has restaurants around, a beautiful fountain, besides the National Theatre in the background. In its center there is the column in honor of D. Pedro IV of Portugal, being D. Pedro I of Brazil. Departing from Praça do Comercio, Rua Augusta will finish precisely in Praça do Rossio. Mandatory visit

  • Basically, it is a place like any other, in Lisbon it is a big one. However, the visual impression of the pavement is sensational.
