The Arco da Rua Augusta in Lisbon is the highlight of Rua Augusta Street, and I wonder whether to give you a piece of history on the gate, or to rely on the knowledge you get at the center of the Lisbon story. It was...More

I walked under this arch several times in my exploration of the City. It is the welcome to Lisbon from either direction and you end up at the main square or leave the main square to head in to central Lisbon. I read that this...More

Went here right after the Lisbon Story - using the Lisbon card. Great view - no crowds. Very interesting clock to ring the bell. Great structure - worth the time if weather is nice.

We have a great view from the top of the arch over the Terreiro do Paço or Praça do Comércio and the river. Great place to take some pics. If you're in Lisbon you should go up there.

Walking back to our ship noticed a sign for a view from the arch. Best 2.5euro ever spent. An elevator and a small spiral staircase and you are looking over the square. The weather was spectacular, which didn't hurt.

The Arch is the gateway between the water area and Rua Augusta. On a sunny day is a great place for pictures! The area is the place to catch busses to Belem, tram or bus to the castle or a tuck tuc that will take...More

Like everywhere in the world that you find archs, this is one more with awesome sculpting and with a huge size and a clock on it. It is near the praca do Commercio. You definitely cannot miss it.

Full center of lisbon, where good restaurants, tourist attractions, architecture and many tourists converge. All transportation options arrive there. You can take good photos.

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

Я хотела бы спросить модератора: зачем он редактирует и извращает отзывы. Мой отзыв был посвящён Триумфальной арке в Барселоне. Исчезли слова: "Барселона приветствует нации". Моя арка оказалась в Лиссабоне. Можно как-то поаккуратнее работать с материалом? Буду благодарна, если исправите ошибки и вернёте картинки. Там же видно, что арка из КРАСНОГО КИРПИЧА. Прошу срочно принять меры.
