A very big open square where you will find some official functions such as the City Hall and a big post office where I come to mail my cards. Good service at the post office. The tourist information office is nearby. There is a kiosk in the square where you can order a cold drink.

Municipal Square is one of several small plazas in the Biaxa district in Lisbon. It is the location of the Neo-classical City Hall building, a charming Manueline style pillory column as well as traditional Portuguese style cobblestones that create a nice surface pattern throughout the square.

Most likely you will just be passing through the area in route to other designated sightseeing endeavours nearby. If you do happen to find yourself at Municipal Square, take a minute to enjoy the architecture, monument pillory and calcada portuguesa cobblestones for a few minutes before carrying onward.

We went to the post office here and admired the other government buildings around. This is a big open square very near the river, open, noble, lacking in traffic, and pretty.

Lovely square with beautiful buildings. The town hall is very impressive. If you stand with your back to the town hall you will see an enormous, very beautiful bougainvillea climbing up a building.
On the way between the Pink Street and the Praca do Comercio.

We were staying at an apartment not far from here so we passed through this square, where you find the City Hall, many many times. Also went to the post office here. It's attractive.

This is a huge square downtown with official buildings around it. It is just off the riverfront so you will probably pass through it. Very attractive.

This is one of the town centers in old Lisboa, a classic collection of special municipal buildings on a stone square. Some traffic. Come for the architecture and you will surely take photos.

The city square, once named after Saint Julian, was marked out by the architects in 1755, after the tragic earthquake that destroyed a large part of Lisbon's buildings. In the past, he was considered a silent witness of the proclamation of the republic in the early twentieth century, today, it is a great example of charming architecture, including the characteristic cobblestones, or "calcada portuguesa", which are arranged in beautiful, regular patterns. The town hall is located at the square. The town hall of the capital was built in 1880. The neoclassical structure, designed by the architect Dominguesq Parente da Silva, is one of the most elegant buildings in Lisbon. On the square you can also find an 18th-century monument. It stands on a broad stone platform with five steps in the center of Praca do Município. The pillar-shaped monument is locally called the pillory, or "pelourinho" in Portuguese. Lovely place.

Close to Praco da Commercio, this is small but elegant square which is home of course to the Municipal Building. The centrepiece is an elegant statue surrounded by patterned tiles. It makes for a quiet stop away from the hustle and bustle of the city and is a good place to sit and relax for a while.
