Rua Augusta Arch
Positioned on Praça do Comércio and acting as a grand opening onto the Baixa's central Rua Augusta, this ornate and imposing archway is also known as the Rua Augusta Arch.
As the name hints, the Arco Triunfal was originally built to commemorate Lisbon’s reconstruction following the devastating earthquake in 1755, although the version that exists today dates from 1875.
The Rua Augusta Arch is adorned with various statues of historical figures and following restoration in 2013 it now gives visitors the chance to visit a rooftop gazebo on top of the monument. From here there are breathtaking panoramic views across the city including the various downtown squares, cathedrals and the Tragus River.
