A commemorative arch dedicated to recovery from the 1775 earthquake, Arco do Triunfo boasts 7 m (23 ft) statues at its top, representing glory, valor, and ingenuity. Originally a bell tower, this neoclassical structure took over a century to become what it is today. Standing over 30 m (100 ft), it welcomes you to the historical area of Lisbon. Look for statues of Vasco da Gama, Nuno Alvares Pereira, Viriato, and Marquis of Pombal at its lower level. Climb the arch's gazebo to get panoramic views of Rua Augusta.

  • This is an important impressive monument. You will not miss when here. The view from up is beautiful.  more »
  • Truly imposing the majesty of this square well kept and full of history. A nice surprise. So much confusion for the electric scoooters that pass you on each side and do not allow you to see the beauties in Serenity
