Best view of city

Loved this view/ few people waiting- short q/ good price and lots of space at the top. Not great for people with poor knees as its a narrow staircase.

OK, this is paid attraction, but if you want to see something nice - you need to pay.There are scenic views from the top of the arc.

Lovely photo op. From either side to get a view through the archway. Better in good light. Early morning has less crowds to get in the picture.

The walk to get here is nice. You walk by many shops and restaurants along a pedestrian only street. The area does have its share of solicitors and pickpockets, as does any large city. When you continue on you arrive at the river.

From the Arco triunfal da Rua Augusta we can see the river, the sea, the other side of the river and Jesus statue, as we can see the wonderful portuguese calçadas and hand made tiles, you can't go to Lisbon and not visit this place.

Fabulous view at the end of the street towards the sea, a real stand out on the front at Lisbon. Well worth going.

Few people know this (for now) but you can climb to the top! theres an elevator access at the bottom of the arch to take you most of the way up. Then some stairs but nothing too serious. And it is so worth it. The views over the Rua Augusta and over large parts of the city are AMAZING! You... More

Colosal triumph arch that connects the city centre and the Praça do Comercio, the huge open square to the Tejo river.

Staying in Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores

Neighborhood 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"!
