Amazing arch

Such a beautiful arch in Commerce Square. You can't miss it. Overlooks the sea and the Rua Augusta. Absolutely worth a visit in Lisbon.

If youre strooling around downtown lisbon you wont miss this. This arch is located at one of our main plazas downtown, which is called Praça do comercio. Its a nice place to walk around and get to know our beautiful town of Lisbon.

It is a good option to see Lisbon from the top, the price is not bad 2,50€ per person, and you have elevator half way, the rest you will need to use the stairs

My wife, two children, relatives and I visited Lisbon in August and September 2016. The Arco Triunfal da Rua Augusta is at the end of a very long pedestrian shopping area also called Rua Augusta. Rua Augusta has many stores and restaurants. The Arch is very beautiful and after you pass through it you are at Commercial Square. The center... More

Fantastic view. Going trough the Prada de comercio and thinking all those sailors that departrd from here is amasing. Going up to the arch it takes you to another level! Fantastic.

The Arch is right at the end of the street, where it meets Praça do Comércio. So you can't miss it. It's a beautiful composition with the whole square around it.

Staying in Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores

Neighbourhood Profile
Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
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 imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
