Great place to quickly see incredible views for low price

only €2.5 and no wait at all. Incredible 360 degree views and an excellent location for hopping on the tram to see another part of the city.

You can't miss this, as it stands out at the end of the pedestrian walking street in Lisbon. It is very pretty and nice to go to the top and enjoy the panoramic views of the ocean, the ships and the Christ. Lots of stairs, or you can take the elevator up.

The beautiful day given to us made time spent at the top a view to remember. Lisbon is just so beautiful and so panoramic frames were great, the view of the bay with the bridge and Christ the Redeemer in the distance on a clear day from that point was fantastic. I don't think it's fair to say it's just... More

Great view of Rua Augusta, Terreiro do Paço and Tagus river. It is a bit narrow to get to the top through the stairs, but worth it!

The grand arch and entry is a fitting greeting when coming off the lovely, huge seaside plaza and starting up Lisbons pedestrian shopping street. We were fortunate to do our 1st visit late afternoon and learn of the giant video/ sound show that evening, which drew us back at 9:30 pm . The projected lights and images across the arch... More

It's a nice piece of architecture but it's not out of this world. I recommend seeing it as you go shopping but I wouldn't make a special trip just for this.

A magnificent arch with access to a viewing level and 360 views. There is a lift to the 2nd level, then 79 steps to the top up a narrow spiral staircase, controlled by traffic lights to avoid accidents. On a clear day the views up Rua Augusta to Rossio, and to Castelo Sao Jorge are beautiful and also over Praça... More

You cannot miss this beautiful white arch that dominates the entrance to the commercial square. View it from both sides and examine the complex details. As the area gets quite busy, it will be difficult to get distance photos without people in them. Busses and trams stop nearby as this is a major landmark of Lisbon. Once in the square,... More
