The arch that marks the end of the popular tourist street Rua Augusta. Here you can find a wide range of fashion stores and everything foodie from restaurants to gelateria, and plenty of street performers or street 'statues' that's there to attract the attention of the tourists. The best part of it is the entire length of the street is made for pedestrians to walk through and casually browse their favorite stores. Most of the stores there have some amazing deals to attract customers, though it can get a bit crowded.

Clearly, this magnificent arch is one of the top architectural sights in Lisbon. The Arco da Rua Augusta was built to commemorate the victims of the 1755 earthquake that leveled Lisbon. It took over 110 years to complete.

This street, Augusta, takes you from the Gloria elevator to Terreiro do Paço, a main square next to river Tagus. Popular str with restaurants, shops, the Design museum. Ending with a beautiful arch.
