Praça do Comércio (Rua Augusta Arch)

Google maps

The Rua Augusta Arch, one of Lisbon’s magnificent landmarks, was built to commemorate the city’s reconstruction after the 1755 earthquake.

When admiring this masterpiece it is not difficult to understand why the arch was only officially completed in 1875….

You can climb up the arch for unique views of Baixa and the Tagus river, leaving Lisbon at your feet, literally. One of the best 360º views  Lisbon has to offer!

Sightseeing – LISBON

Alfama and Castelo São Jorge

Google maps

Located on the highest of Lisbon’s seven hills, the Castelo de São Jorge is the city’s most visited attraction, and perhaps its most impressive one, if not for the building itself at least for its position with many viewpoints offering majestic and unparalleled views of Lisbon and the Tejo river. Built in the mid-11th century, this fortification still retains eleven towers displaying various architectural features characteristic of military fortifications from the Moorish period.

The easiest way to access the Castle is via the new escalator leaving from Martim Moniz or via the elevator in front of metro exit Baixo Chiado and then switch to the next elevator in the Pingo Doce store.
