Description

Praca da Figueira is situated in Lisbon's Baixa district. There was a powerful earthquake in 1755 that seriously destroyed a hospital situated where the square is today. The square was built a few decades after the earthquake, once the hospital was torn down. Visitors can see the medieval Castle of St. George from here, which overlooks the square from a nearby hill.
