  • The Marquis of Pombal Square is a traditional location point in Lisbon. Imposing, the top of each pedestal, it's like the Marquis was guiding the passers-by. On one side is the Eduardo VII Park, the starting point of buses and vans to city tours, and other traditional avenida da Liberdade.

  • The square is to take pictures only and no big deal. The Marquis has its history but the city has a lot to meet so a I can waste a lot of time!
