Rossio Square is one of three large squares located in the Baixa district of Lisbon.  The tree-lined square comes alive in springtime when the trees break into blossom.

Rossio has been Lisbon's main square since the middle ages.  A number of the city's most spectacular buildings can be found on the square.  The National Theatre is one of them.
