Praça da Figueira Tours

star-2
2 Reviews
Praça da Figueira
Praça da Figueira, which means Square of the Fig Tree in English, is located in the Baixa neighborhood of Lisbon. In 1755 there was a strong earthquake that greatly damaged a hospital located where the square is today. The square was built a few decades after the earthquake, once the hospital was torn down. The square is surrounded by guesthouses, shops, and cafes, including the well known Confeitaria Nacional and Pastelaria Suica. 

Along with huge flocks of pigeons, a bronze statue of King João I sitting on a horse can also be found in the square. Though the statue looks old, it only dates back to 1971. From here visitors can see the historic Castle of St. George which looks down on the square from a nearby hill. Tourists and locals alike often pass through Praça da Figueira since it is a big transport hub, and many sightseeing tours of the city start at this square.

Practical Info

Praça da Figueira is located east of Praça de Dom Pedro IV, often referred to as Rossio Square. To get there take the metro to Rossio Station.
Address: Praça da Figueira, Lisbon, Lisboa 1100, Portugal

Tour of the historic districts of Lisbon

Tour of the historic districts of Lisbon

Not working for big companies, I want to introduce you to Lisbon as my eyes see it and to those who live in this city. Tourism has brought positive but also negative things like the depopulation of the districts of the historic center and the loss of a sort of genuineness. On the other hand, the popular neighborhoods that were once decadent and dangerous are now all colorful and quiet. I would like to convey to you the authenticity and charm of this city sung by poets, musicians and the famous fadists. All this can still be found in the central districts where small shops survive and the old Portuguese pockets (trattorias) often run by elderly gentlemen or couples who guard the culinary secrets of this city. Lisbon is also a mystery and this is only found in some places that deserve to be discovered by those who want to discover. Like the Casa do Alentejo, the burned church of Sao Domingo or the historic Ginja premises, the cherry liqueur.
