Fodor's Review

Capping the post-earthquake restoration of Lisbon's downtown, the Triumphal Arch offers a splendid viewpoint from which to admire the handsome buildings that were constructed in the wake of the devastating quake. Access is via an elevator and then up two narrow, winding flights of stairs. Once at the top, young visitors delight in ringing a giant bell, while the grown-ups can admire views over Praça do Comércio and the River Tejo in one direction, and peek at shoppers, street performers, and sightseers ambling along Rua Augusta in the other. The red-roofed houses and grand religious buildings that climb up the surrounding hillsides complete the scene.
