Pombal, It presents parallel and perpendicular streets, which contrast
with the labyrinthine alleys of its neighbor the Alfama. The restaurants of La Baixa often display menus in all languages, reflecting the large number of tourists who tread the streets at all times of the year. In the south, the immense commercial square (Praça do Comercio) is a symbol of the city, with its 35,000 square meters, its statue of Joseph I and its saffron-yellow frontages, under the galleries of which there are restaurants. Generously sunny and directly overlooking the Tage, it is a very pleasant walk. The streets of the Baixa, which go up from this square to arrive at that of the Rossio, shelter many shops, some of which are real journeys in the old days: old haberdasheries with Art Deco facades, wool, fabrics, Enticing ...
