There was a market there during our stay. We got some really great local food and it was great to mingle with locals after the ‘wall to wall tourists’ (ourselves included) experience of an open top bus.
Great fare and a nice atmosphere.
There’s not much to see at Fig Tree Square (Praça da Figueira). Mostly an open square with a modest sized statue of King John I in the middle and a lot of traffic around it. Not really worth searching out.
On some days of the week this square has busy food and merchandise stalls - in the middle. There is a large selection of things to buy and eat. Nice leather goods and a lot of local foods.
You can also catch many buses and...More
I guess the nearest thing to 'street food' that we found in Lisbon. Walking around the stalls there are so many great smells that even though we hadn't planned to we ended up having lunch and a sangria to wash it down with. The pork...More

Lisboa is nice and beautiful city with many charming places like Praca da Figueira, where is the cross of many trams and buses lines. Some days in the week, part of square become little exhibition of foods or green market positioned in the city center....More
Cons: Room was absolutely tiny, you could barely open the door without hitting the bed.
The windows blocked most of the sound from outside, however there was a horrible scraping sound in the mornings that we found to be the clothesline outside. You can also...More
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"!
Sorry I don't have the right answer... but I was there again last week (on a Friday) and it wasn't there! So I believe that it might be seasonal (maybe summer school vacations time only?). Hope somebody knows :)
