“WOW view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013

This is incredible place! Beautiful arch itself is one of the main decorations of the central Commerce Square. White accent between yellow buildings looks terriffic under bright Lisbon's sun!

The viewpoint on the top of the arch lets you overlook both Glorious Square and charming Augusta Street from the best spot! It's been a surprise that there were just a few people and not the huge crowd as I expected.

Just a 2 Euro fee is nothing in compare to the excitement you get there upstairs!

“Ride the elevator to the top”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

After going there two days after the elevator inauguration only to find out it was "out service" due to a malfunction I managed to actually go back and go to the top of the arch.
You'll get a good enough view, but from many other points of Lisbon you'll get a much better view for free.

“GO - Beach, Views, Architecture!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

Absolutely a must see. Just walk through quickly at the least! The arch itself is beautiful and so easy to get to. Plus, if you continue through the plaza, there is a cute little beach and lovely places for photographs! Plus there are several restaurants in the area and some flea market type tables selling things if you're interested in that. We went right around sunset and it was absolutely breathtaking. You can even take an elevator up to the top of the arch and see the view from there as well as the clock on the arch.

“Amazing view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

Outstanding view to S. Jorge Castle and Praça do Comercio. Lisbon is a breathtaking city and this new place is a must. Can see also the clock mechanism. The admission fee is fair.
