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.

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

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 :)

Yep the metro and rail stations are next to the square. The bus direct from the airport also stops there and is best way to get to downtown Lisbon from the airport.
