Walking down the Rua Augusta, you come into the Praca do Comercio via this arch. As we had the Lisbon Card, it was free for us. There is a lift to the top - no stairs on this one - and the view from the...More

The arch is very impressive and from a long way off doesn't look too big, but as you get closer if really is huge. Very impressive when seen from back up the street with a lot of people around.

Head of the iconic downtown square is worth seeing. Cross through and there is pretty much any kind of shopping you can imagine

Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site,
Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply
"Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake
construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755
earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its
name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in
Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the
Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the
