The Praca do Comercio became Lisbon, Portugal's commercial square after the Great Earthquake of 1755 completely destroyed Lisbon. It served as the Royal residence before the quake, and after the quake it becmae the centertpoint of commerce in Lisbon housing the bureacracy involving custom duties and commerce.

It's a nice area of Lisbon but go from the square to the water! There are some nice stairs for a picnic or a good book.

Rebuilt after the 1755 earthquake that destroyed a big part of the city of Lisbon, its considered one of the most beautiful squares in the world, not only because of its location but because of the harmony of its architecture. Nowadays you can find a big variety of very nice restaurants and bar. Praça do Comercio, also know as Terreiro do Paço is walking distance for the apartment.

Right on the waterfront! You can walk straight from downtown to see this area. Then take a trolley or taxi to wherever you want. The only part I didn't like about this area was that at night there are a lot of homeless people that crowd around the walls.

Right by the Tejo River, in Baixa, the heart of the city. This is the easiest place to catch trams to Alfama and up Castelo São Jorge. Note: beware of pickpockets on those trams, it's not a myth, one tried to pick mine, they dress like your regular tourist and usually work in tandems, an older guy trying to distract you (mine asked to look at the metro map I was holding), the younger/quicker one sneaking in to your side. The statue in the centre of the square is of King José I.
