"Praca do Comercio" Top 5 Page for this destination Praça do Comércio - Terreiro do Paço Tip by acemj


Before the devastating earthquake of 1755, this square facing the river was the site of the Royal Palace. It still has the feel of being the gateway to Lisbon, but not so much in a literal sense as it once was. The perimeter is surrounded by government buildings and it is also a main transportation hub where you can catch trams and buses.

Address: Rua Augusta 2, 1100-053 Lisboa
