    Arc de Triomphe is one of the classic landmarks of Lisbon Trade Square. It is a magnificent and magnificent door. On one side of the door is the square, and through the Arc de Triomphe is the busy pedestrian street to Rosio Square. We didn't get on the Arc de Triomphe, which is said to offer a panoramic view of Lisbon and the ocean.

    Lisbon, the westernmost part of the European continent, used to be the dream place for adventurers to cross the Atlantic Ocean and travel to the New World. Belenta at the mouth of the Taigas River, the first plane to land in Europe, and the discoverer's monument commemorating the 500th anniversary of the death of Prince Henry, all witnessed Portugal's glorious history and recorded all the changes under the blue sky.

    The largest building in Lisbon's Commercial Square is located behind Joseph I's sculpture. The gate opens directly to Augusta Cultural Street, a commercial pedestrian street. Tourists can climb the Arc de Triomphe to overlook the Tejo River. On the Arc de Triomphe there is a statue of a goddess crowned a warrior, engraved with "Glory crowned a gift and courage".

    The Arc de Triomphe is located in the north of the commercial square. It passes through the Arc de Triomphe to Augusta Street. The Arc de Triomphe was originally designed as a bell tower, but for some reason it was finally built into an elaborate arch.

    The Arc de Triomphe of Augusta Street, located in the Cormercio Square in the centre of Lisbon, is a classic stone building in Lisbon. Its original design was a bell tower, but it eventually evolved into an elaborate arch triumphal arch, supported by six 11-meter-high columns decorated with marble statues of various historical heroes, with Portugal in the middle. The national emblem, once the site of the Portuguese palace, is surrounded by yellow municipal buildings on three sides, all of which were destroyed by the 1755 Lisbon earthquake. Only the sculptures on the top of the arch were created by the French sculptor Celestan Anatoly. The eaves here are 30 meters high and the middle is 7 meters high. The statue of the goddess stands like the rainbow on the third floor with glory. The two crowns on the throne symbolize virtues and gifts on both sides. Portuguese is also inscribed on the crown of the pillar of glory for gifts and courage. Four statues pass through the Arc de Triomphe, which is the bustling and noisy shops on both sides of Augusta Street.

    The Arc de Triomphe on Augusta Street commemorates the reconstruction after the 1755 Lisbon earthquake. Across the Arc de Triomphe is Augusta Street, which is lined with shops. Today, on Saturdays, some shops are closed and some open late. It's busy and noisy. From Lisbon across the 425 Bridge across the Tejo River (much like the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, USA), you can see a tall statue of Jesus on a hill. This is the famous Portuguese statue of Jesus.

    The Arc de Triomphe on Augusta Street is quite unique among the many triumphal doors in Europe. On one side, it is a pedestrian street, on the other side, it is a commercial square. The appearance of the Arc de Triomphe on Augusta Street is still spectacular. At close range, it looks like the goddess grabbing a balance, very solemn and solemn. This is a testimony of Portugal's prosperity in its heyday, which is worth visiting.

    The Arc de Triomphe on Augusta Street was originally a bell tower, but after more than a century of delays, it eventually evolved into an elaborate arch structure, which was the only building left after the devastating 9.1 earthquake in Lisbon in 1755, although it did not have the atmosphere of the Arc de Triomphe in Paris.

    The Arc de Triomphe on Augusta Street is located between Augusta Street and Business Square. It was originally designed as a bell tower. Due to the delay of construction time, it eventually evolved into a classic arch building. Four statues on the top of the column commemorate four great Portuguese figures. In the middle, the goddess represents glory.
