Arco Monumental da Rua Augusta

The Arch in Rua Augusta:

Visitable monument that offers access to a vantage point with a 360º view of the city. The emblematic square of Terreiro do Paço, the Pombaline downtown area, the Cathedral, the Castle of St. Jorge and the River Tejo are some of the iconic landmarks that you can see from the top of the building.

On the upper part of the arch, you can see the sculptures by Célestin Anatole Calmels – Glory crowning Genius and Valour. Lower down are sculptures by Vítor Bastos, representing the historical figures of Viriatus, Vasco da Gama, the Marquis of Pombal and Nuno Álvares Pereira.

Inside, in the Clock Room, you can find out about the history of this triumphal arch, from the time when construction first started, after the 1755 earthquake, to its completion in 1875.
