Triumphal arches are usually placed to commemorate any specific victories from the time of ancient Rome. This triumphal arch was erected without reference to a specific victory. There were no victories in 1883 when it was completed, nor in 1757 when it was conceived in the context of the overall reconstruction of Rua Augusta after the Great Earthquake. The hero of the restoration of Lisbon, the Marquis of Pombal, is depicted on the arch with Vasco da Gama. But women in a reclining state with such faces on the Internet will not find. These are allegories of the main rivers of Portugal, the Tagus and the Douro.

I passed by it on the way to Castle Jorge, and made sure I walked to it after. Imposing, elegant, and a great piece of history along with engineering. One side opens up to a expansive courtyard area that provides views of the Tagus River, and nice monument. The other side opens to the city and is the central point for boutique shopping, eateries, and wonderful architecture. Main stop for public transport also and a very laid back feel to the entire area, with a great mix of locals, young and old, while tourist revel in the beauty of the city. Highly recommend a stop and about a 15 minute walk to Castle Jorge which is another cannot miss, with breath taking views of the sprawling city. Best to catch at sunset!

The arch is part of a beautiful historic building, the entrance to the main shopping street of Lisbon on one side and the Praca do Comercio on the other side. A great sight and a must see in Lisbon.

Arco da Rua Augusta is a stone triumphal arch in Lisbon. The Triumphal Arch, Rua Augusta Street is a monumental building of approx. 30 meters high connecting Rua Augusta Street , the most famous and most beautiful street in Lisbon with the largest square in Lisbon, Praca do Comercio. The Triumphal Arch is crowned with the allegory of Glory and Bravery and the figure of Genius - the protective spirit of the city. The figures placed in the structure at the supports of the arch are the famous: Vasco da Gama, the Marquis de Pombal and the commander of Lusitania - Viriatus. It was built on Praca do Comercio to commemorate the reconstruction of the city after the 1755 earthquake. Originally, the structure was intended to serve as a bell tower, but in 1873 it was converted into an elaborate arch. A must see during the day and lit up at night.
