Praça Martim Moniz


This square, looking up to the castle, is the center of the city’s most multiethnic neighborhood. It’s something of a mini Chinatown or Little India, in addition to being a terminal of the famous tram 28. 
Neglected for several years, it was revived in 2012 as a street food market, with several food stalls with terraces now serving the flavors of the neighborhood’s various cultures (Chinese, Indian, African, among others). 
On weekends it hosts the "Fusion Market," mixing a variety of products, from handicrafts to ethnic and organic foods, often accompanied by live music. 
A giant dragon, created in 2012 (year of the dragon) using pieces of old cell phones and computers, is found in the middle of the square, as a tribute to the Chinese community.
