  Lisbon - Praca do Comercio
by salinhopt

The praça do Comercio is the symbol of the historical power and grandeur of the country of Portugal.

The square existed before the terrible earthquake in 1755 that destroyed the lower part of town. At the time, it was called the Terreiro de paço (palace square), and was, in fact, the residence of the royal family.
