Photographer's Note

This is a shot from the Rossio square at Downtown Lisboa, with the Teatro Nacional Dona Maria II in the background and a fountain in the foreground.

That part of the city, called "Baixa", was completely rebuit after the hearthquake which took place in 1755. The area is structured along the Avenida da Liberdade with the banking district, the big elevator de Sana Justa leading to the Cidade alta, the main shops and Libraries. You may find wonderful typical portuguese pastries nearby in the Confeiteria Nacional.
