I have visited it with my wife, we found it a very beautiful arch, although we haven't climbed to the top.

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.

With the lisboa card in hand, we ventured to the top of the Arco, thinking can it be as good or better than any of the cities view points. I must say it was very impress giving a 360 view of this amazing city, we were there at midday end experienced the clock bell chiming away. Definetly worth doing.

For once this terrace is a viewpoint not like all the miradouros, it's in the city/pedestrian/shopping-mall. For € 2.50 (elevator, a few steps) you enjoy a nice view of the Tejo river with the "mini golden-gate-bridge" (bridge of the 25 april), the huge praça de comercio and the pedestrian shopping zone.

This is the Triumphal Arch of Lisbon, it was made by a famous French sculptor, with a spectacular view of the ocean. We went during the day and at night, and it was beautifully lit at night. You can sit by the ocean and absorb all that beauty.

Possibly the nicest place we took the kids to. Stunning is the only word I have to describe this square.

The arch is impressive and is readily viewable as you walk down the Rua Augusta toward the river. It is also imposing when viewed from the plaza by the river. We did not go to the top because we had seen spectacular views of the city from the Castle.

Climbing the Arco, you have a view of the Praca do Comercio and the surrounding area of the Baixa and the hills. It's not really special beyond that, though.

Interesting view point slightly above the roofs of downtown Lisbon. Don't expect amazing views. For 5 euros it is adequate.

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"!
