Praça da Figueira, Lisbon: 24 reviews and 42 photos
Another great Lisbon Square is Praca da Figueira. It is located right by Rossio, but retains more of an old world feel.
Although it is a bit of a transport hub, it was less hectic than Rossio and surrounded by some interesting shops and buildings.
There is a statue of Dom Joao I astride his horse, which seems to be quite a popular place for the local pigeons to meet up.
One shop here is the Confeitaria Nacional which dates back to 1829. It will tempt you in by its tasty window displays and wide range if culinary delights.
Praca da Figueira is home to the Rossio metro station and also one point to catch the number 15 tram to Belem.
Address: Baixa district
