This is one of the most charming squares in the city. Idyllic, surrounded by beautiful trees, cafes and a quite romantic ruin, the square’s appearance belies its history. It was here that in April 25, 1974 that Portugals’ ruling dictator surrendered. There are a number of attractions here. For one, the square is quite high up, and from its terraces, you get great views of the city. Not far away is the historic and extraordinary Santa Justa Elevator (Elevador de Santa Justa). The ruins of the 14th century Carmo Convent, once a grand building that was destroyed by the 1755 earthquake, gives the square a nice old world touch. At the chapel alcoves of the ruins, you’ll find small archaeological exhibits.
It’s a beautiful place to visit at sunrise or sunset.
