"Baixa, the central Lisbon neighborhood" Baixa Pombalina Tip by codrutz

Baixa Pombalina, Lisbon: 26 reviews and 58 photos

  Arco do Trionfo - beginning of Baixa
by codrutz

Baixa neighborhood is the most central. There is a straight line (almost), from Praça do Comércio (Square of Commerce), trough the Arco do Triunfo (in the picture), from there you enter the parallel pedestrian streets (Rua Augusta and Rua dos Correiros), which are the most walked streets of Lisbon. Walking north you will find on the left the Santa Justa elevator then you reach Praça Dom Pedro IV, with the tall column and the National Theater and the train station, then Praça Restauradores, after which is the long boulevard Avenida da Liberdade going to the big square Praça de Marquês de Pombal after which is the Parque Eduardo VII.

Address: Rua Augusta, 1100 Lisboa
Directions: North Praça do Comércio, between Cais do Sodré & Alfama beneath Lisbon Castle, towards Rossio & Figueira squares & Avenida da Liberdade,
