The monument is very pretty and impressive. It's best to view the monument from all directions, because each has its own sculptures.

We walked past this magnificent statue/plaza while exploring Lisbon ... beautifully crafted and a powerful tribute to an important figure.

This is one of my favourite statues in the city. In the middle of an island it scans the panorama of the city the marquis rebuilt

The Marqués de Pombal Monument is located in the centre of the square by the same name between Ave. de Liberdade and Parque Eduardo VII. It was built between 1917-34 and pays tribute to the Marquess, who oversaw the rebuilding of Lisbon after the 1755 Earthquake.

What you see is a bronze of the Marquess of Pombal with his hand on the head of a lion as he faces Baixa, the main area of the city which was reconstructed in the aftermath of the 1755 Earthquake. He stands upon a four-sided column with medallions and engravings that rises from a large, decorative base with an allegorical configuration of figures representing Pombal's political, educational and agricultural reforms. You'll be able to see broken stone blocks, the front of a ship fitted to monument which is circled by traditional calçada portuguesa (cobblestone) patterned surface.

The monument is impressive and worth spending a few minutes to view from various positions around Praça do Marquês de Pombal if spending time at this area of Ave. da Liberdade and enjoy monument viewing during your travels.

The statue is very huge and beautiful, just before the park, looking into the main city. It is pretty impressive.

This huge statue of the guy who rebuilt Lisbon after the earthquake dominates a huge traffic circle. Some very grand buildings around it, including our bank HQ. Not especially pretty, very difficult for a pedestrian.

This huge statue the Marquis de Pombal dominates one end of the Avenue da Liberdade. This is by far the most impressive monument on the avenue, as it should be. Sebastiao Jose de Carvalho e Melo, also known as the Marquis of Pombal, was instrumental in completely rebuilding (and redesigning) Lisbon after the devastating earthquake of November 1, 1755.

Here is it in the middle of the huge traffic circle. The circle is so large that it is hard to walk all the way around. We had a banking appointment here so we enjoyed the view from an office window. It's a big statue dedicated to the guy who rebuilt the city after the earthquake.

Impressive statute and what I assume may be a water feature (although not operating now). Well maintained and well positioned.

A beautiful statue in the center of the square depicting Sebastiao Jose de Carvalho e Melo known to everyone as the Marquis of Pombal. The bronze statue of the Marquis designed by Adaes Bermudes, Antonio Couto and Francisco Santos was placed on a tall column. The Marquis was a powerful prime minister who ruled Portugal from 1750-1777. He was instrumental in rebuilding Lisbon, which was damaged by the earthquake. The figure is facing the Baixa district, which was rebuilt under his supervision. A great figure of merit in Portuguese history is beautifully honored with a magnificent statue in the square named after him, Praca do Marques de Pombal. Magnificent and impressive, it is worth taking a close look and observing all the sculptures that make up the statue.
