This is a lovely building in central Lisbon. We were rather disappointed that once again - the building was not open to tours during our visit.

Teatro Nacional Dona Maria II located on Rossio Square is really a beautiful architectural piece. It is constructed to celebrate birthday of Queen Dona Maria II. Nonetheless we have time constraint and cannot enter to see the internal part of the theater.

The beautiful theatre building at Rossio Square is constructed to mark the birthday of young Queen D. Maria II. In fact the whole building has been reconstructed after the damage by fire in 1964 but it looks pretty nice around the neighbouring structures.

Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
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
