What to expect

Do not miss a visit to the triumphal Rua Augusta Arch which has always impressed those roaming Lisbon’s busiest pedestrianised street.
Now you can visit the top of this unique structure for a truly singular and impressive view of Baixa and the river. The Arc symbolises the rebirth of a new Lisbon after the tragedy of the earthquake, fire and tsunami in 1755 that razed what stood before.
In Latin, it affirms “The Virtues of the Greatest”: the strength, resilience and achievements of the Portuguese people.
At the top stand the sculptures by Célestin Anatole Calmels of Glory crowning Genius and Valour. You will be inspired by these values as you admire the best 360º panoramic views of the city.
Discover also the history of the arch during the exhibition in the Clock Room.
