Praça da Figueira, Lisbon

A multi-purpose, but nondescript, square in the heart of Lisbon, Praça da Figueira serves as an outdoor food and drinks market, a transport hub and a modest tourist attraction thanks to its grand statue of King John I on horseback and several period four-storey buildings. This is a good spot to sample Portuguese cheeses and cold meats, washed down by a beer or glass of wine.
