    Praca do Comercio is the main and biggest square in Lisbon which once housed the Royal Palace until the devastating 1755 earthquake.
    The most eye catching feature on the square is this glorious Triumphal Arch, set in the middle of yellow arched state edifices on both sides of it.
    The Triumphal Arch represents Portugal's victory over the earthquake, as the city was rebuilt from rubble after it under Marquis de Pombal who redesigned and rebuilt much of the city.
    You can climb the Arch for elevated views for a small fee, but there's really no need for that as Lisbon has many free Miradouros on his hills.

    Marquis de Pombal was an important Portuguese statesman, who was responsible for rebuilding and remodeling the city after the devastating 1755 earthquake.
    Thanks to him we admire such a great metropolis today.
    His square with a tall monument is at the northern end of Avenida de Liberdade, just before the beautiful Edvard VII park.
    It is pretty hard to approach the monument so we circled in our car two full circles around it to see it better.

    We sat with the poet outside the cafe that he used to frequent and took some photos. I guess everyone does this. The statue and the poet himself are icons. Very popular area.

    Well this big statue is in the middle of the Commercio Sqaure and you will surely see it as you wander around. We passed a dozen times on our long stay. It is impressive as is the large harmonious square that it graces.

    I didn't know about that monument, we were just walking past Torre de Belem up to Bom Sucesso Fortress. It is a peaceful place, simple triangle shape, surrounded by water, but it was worth seeing it.

    The monument is a cool airplane but the story behind the monument is brilliant. Amazing story of crossing the South Atlantic in an early airplane. Great story.

    This monument is a tribute to Dr. Jose Tomaz de Sousa Martins, who worked intensively and mostly for free in the fight against tuberculosis. He is an idol in Portugal because he studies tuberculosis, tries to set up sanatoriums and works for the poor. At 54, he contracted tuberculosis and, knowing there was no cure, committed suicide with a morphine injection. The monument we mentioned was erected 6 years after his death.This statue that is a semi-religious cult to the people, Dr. Sousa Martins' soul is believed to still help with healing. The people of Lisbon, for the most part, still go to the monument every March 7 and August 18 and continue to lay down candles, flowers and offerings for petitions or thanks for miraculous healings at the foot of the statue.

    This tower is part of the fortifications of the fort that is hgh above the city. You can see why it was built there as the views over the city are amazing.

    This monument at the far end of the Avenue da Liberdade from the monument to the Marques of Pombal. It was erected in 1886 in honor of the fighters for freedom and independence from Spain. The dates and places of the battles of the 28-year War for Independence1640-1668 are immortalized on the monument.

    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.

    Very impressive statue in the middle of one of the most important squares in town. You will surely see it as you walk around and you should at least pay a little attention to it. No one is completely sure who is depicted here, but the square is important.

    10 years after forcing the Jews in Portugal a priest pushed Christians in the near by church to Pogrom ex Jews in Lisbon (Condemning them for not being real Christians).
    It is important to remember this crime.

    Big and impressive in the middle of one of the busy squares in the city. It is the focal point of this square. Not an especially pretty statue, but it is grand.
