Rua Augusta Arch

Local nameArco da Rua Augusta
LocationLisbon, Portugal

The arch was built in order to celebrate the city's reconstruction after the 1755 Lisbon earthquake. Fans of Gulliver's Travels will have no trouble recognising it, as it was used in a movie version of this literary masterpiece.
The top of the arch is accessible to the public and it offers magnificent views of Commerce Square and the surrounding area.
