A commemorative arch dedicated to recovery from the 1775 earthquake, Arco do Triunfo boasts 7 m (23 ft) statues at its top, representing glory, valor, and ingenuity. Originally a bell tower, this neoclassical structure took over a century to become what it is today. Standing over 30 m (100 ft), it welcomes you to the historical area of Lisbon. Look for statues of Vasco da Gama, Nuno Alvares Pereira, Viriato, and Marquis of Pombal at its lower level. Climb the arch's gazebo to get panoramic views of Rua Augusta.

  • If you go down to the seaside plaza you will take in the river Tagus and probably the tram stop but make sure you look bad at this  more »
  • The Arc de triomphe is an entrance portal to Augusta Street, which further embellishes The Commerce Square. Large, beautiful and very well maintained contributes to the scenery of the square, a beautiful monument, nothing more than that.
