Address
Neighbourhood: Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
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"!

This is a very grand and imposing building at one end of Rossio square. A beautiful building to look at with its columns and sculptures that adorn it's frontage

This is a wonderful building and a night time viewing is recommended. Sits on a busy square with fountains and a massive statute at the top of a column.

Teatro Nacional Dona Maria II is a beautiful building. It stands on a very historic site and in one of the most prestigious areas of the city, Rossio Square, or Praca Dom Pedro IV. The site used to be an old palace which was destroyed by fire in the 19th century and rebuilt. It then became the site for the National Theatre. The interior of the Theatre housed many artworks by important Portuguese artists. Unfortunately, however, history repeated itself in the form of yet another destructive fire in 1964! The Portuguese, though, were determined so they rebuilt the whole thing again and the Theatre started its work again in 1978. It is a wonderful building so try not to miss visiting it if you can.

This is a cool looking building at one end of the big square. It gives the square it's anchor. There are a lot of homeless people on the stairs. I liked the big pillars. It's a nice building.

The theatre is a lovely building, with some great architecture. Well worth a visit, if your in the area.

We didn't attend a performance but this was the meeting place for a gastronomic tour of Lisbon (guide failed to turn up!). It is beautifully sited at the top of the Placa Dom Pedro IV (you'll feel dizzy walking across it) and is a magnificent building. Sadly the unfortunate down and outs have adopted it and sleep between the columns. Worthy of inspection nonetheless.

Beautifully placed at the end of Rossio, it is an imposing and attractive build for this prestigious location. Replacing the former Palácio dos Estaus, the delightful frontage of Neo-Classical design is captivating.

The six columns were salvaged from a convent decimated in the 1755 disaster. A richly ornate pediment has a statue of the Portuguese playwright Gil Vicente at its apogee.

We were delighted to attend a performance of Miss Julie, a naturalistic play written in 1888 by August Strindberg.

Located in the centre of Lisbon, it is a very impressive building which stands out due to the large square in front of it with the fountains. On our visit the place was closed which was a shame as if the outside is anything to go by I bet the inside is even better.

We didn't go to the Theatre. But our Daughter needed a toilet in an emergency. In Rosario Square ( I think that's the name of the square ) there is a lack of public restrooms. So, I brought Her into the Theatre and asked if we could use their tiolet. They could not have been nicer or more obliging.

That gesture of kindness we really appreciate and I am writing this review to express my gratitude to them.
