Impossible not to pass under the majestic Triunfal Arch from Rua Augusta: this imposing arch of victory represents the monumental entrance to the city of Lisbon, connecting the square to Rua Augusta, a commercial artery that leads straight into the heart of the historic center. There will not be able to leave you indifferent and is a perfect background for your photographs. If you still want to go further; emotions climb to the top of the monument and admire from the high Piazza del Commercio and the Rua Augusta, a beautiful panoramic view little known to tourists. Rua Augusta è the nerve centre of the city; with several shops of the most famous international brands. Since the end of the eighties the Rua Augusta è closed to traffic; often a meeting place for street artists, craftsmen and street vendors.
