"Gateway to Rua Augusta" Rua Augusta & Arco da Rua Augusta Tip by rcsparty


The gateway from Praca do Comercio to Rua Augusta is an impressive arch. The view from Rua Augusta through the arch, which frames the statue of King Jose I is beautiful, and one of the best pictures I took in Lisbon. It is also like a gateway from one world to the next, as the chaos of Praca do Comercio turns into the café lined Rua Augusta.

Address: Rua Augusta 2, 1100-053 Lisboa
Directions: Between Rua do Arsenal & Rua da Betesga
