"Rossio" Praça Dom Pedro IV - Place du Rossio Tip by el_ruso


This is the grandest of the squares of the city laid out by Marquez de Pombal in accordance with his plan of rebuilding the city after the devastating earthquake in mid-XVIII century.

There is a drama theater here, and you may walk to Chiado or Baixa, both of which are nearby. Elevador de Santa Justa to Chiado can be seen on the photo. If you are hungry, you should head behind the drama theater to the Rua de Porton de Sao Antao (or something like that), which is lined with many nice and affordable restaurants.
