Went up to the viewpoint with the Lisboa Card. There were great views of the Lisbon skyline, the major monuments and Commerce Square. Great place for pictures!

The Arco do Triunfo is one of the most impressive landmarks in Lisbon. The arch is facing the river and it’s a lovely place to walk around. Keep an eye out for pick pockets!

Commemorating the rebuilding of Lisbon after the 1755 earthquake that destroyed much of lisbon, this is an impressive stone arch. When you enter from the Rua Augusta pedestrian street, through the arch into Commerce Square you do get the sense of "arriving" somewhere. The Square...More

Nice arch, with Manueline style and nice views from the roof. It's relatively small but for sure it deserves a special short visit.

As with every major european city, there is an arc of triumph. The arc is beautiful and worth coming to check out. There is plenty to do around this area and it is full of shops and food and drink stores.

We enjoyed our visit but had to be very aware of pickpockets and tricky beggars they was a lot there. A cruise ship was in so it was busy and took time to get around

That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t miss it- it sticks out like a sore thumb. The weight and proportion do make it a bit better that the usual 19th cent. nonsense.

This is the place for a KODAK moment. When you walk from the commercial area through the arch you are at the river. This is one of the places we visited that will remain in my memory of our visit to Lisbon.

I recommend only walking through it, a good sight to see though. Reminiscent of Paris. A very obvious landmark. Skip the interior, not much to do. Difficult to get a photo with because of protestors on the plaza across the street.

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

8 hour layover (4 Replies)
I will be travelling to Newark, NJ from Dusseldorf with an 8 hour layover in Lisbon, Portugal. The plane will land in Lisbon 3:30pm (if all things being equal). I plan on visiting Fatima, spend an hour or two then get back to Lisbon for my connecting flight departing at 12pm. Is this plan reasonable? When does the last bus leave Lisbon? What is the earliest bus out of Fatima to Lisbon? Will I still have time to see Padrao dos Descobrimentos and Arco Triunfal da Rua Augusta? Should I just...More

I wouldn't recommend going to Fatima. For too many reasons, including some of those listed on the post above. Stick to Belem. Too many other things to do / places to see in addition to the Padrao: Tower of Belem, Jeronimos, Maritime Museum, Coach Museum, CCB, Pasteis de Belem, et cetera, et cetera.... Cheers.
