Praça Martim Moniz Tours

Praça Martim Moniz
Right in the heart of Lisbon, Martim Moniz Square (Praça Martim Moniz) is a popular gathering place for locals, with outdoor food stalls and bars. It’s also a starting point for the popular and iconic tram 28 route, plus the surrounding area is home to Lisbon’s Chinatown with a selection of Asian restaurants, supermarkets, and stores.

The Basics
Named after a Portuguese knight who fought in the 1147 siege of Lisbon, Martim Moniz Square is built on the location of part of Lisbon’s ancient city walls. Stand by the fountain (designed to represent the walls) and look up to the right to see remnants of the city wall leading up to the impressive São Jorge Castle (Castelo de S. Jorge) perched on the hilltop.
Aside from being a meeting point for Lisbon locals with trendy open-air bars, on weekends a street food market, Mercado de Fusão, brings the square to life.

You can learn more about the square and its cultural significance on a guided tour of the city by foot, bus, bike, e-bike, or Segway. Hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus tours also frequent the square.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Martim Moniz Square is a must for all first-time visitors to Lisbon.
  • The tram 28 stop is on the western side of the square.
  • There are many inexpensive restaurants in the streets around the square.
  • Martim Moniz Square is accessible to wheelchair users.

How to Get There

Martim Moniz Square is in central Lisbon, just a short walk from Rossio Square and other major sights. It’s accessible on foot, via metro (at the Martim Moniz stop on the Green Line), or tram 28, which stops right at the square

When to Get There
The square is open to the public 24 hours a day. On weekends the street food market attracts loads of folks, and like many other Lisbon sights, the square is usually busiest in the summer months, especially in the evenings.

Visit São Jorge Castle
Originally built in the days of Moorish occupation, São Jorge Castle has overlooked Lisbon for 1,000 years. Archeological finds on the site date back even further, to the second century BC. The castle was extensively restored in the 1940s and offers visitors a chance to step back in time to the days of kings, knights, and battles.
Address: Lisbon 1100-341, Portugal
