The Arc de Triomphe on Augusta Street is a stone historical building and tourist attraction in Lisbon, Portugal. It is located in the commercial plaza to commemorate the post-disaster reconstruction of the 1755 Lisbon earthquake.
Originally designed as a clock tower, the building has six columns 11 meters high and is decorated with statues of various historical figures. In the middle is the Portuguese national emblem. But after more than a century of delay, it eventually became a carved arch. The top group image was created by the French sculptor Celestan Anatoly Calmels. Since the top mouth is up to 30 meters, the characters on it must be huge.
The woman in the middle is 7 meters high, representing glory, standing on the throne of the third floor, holding two crowns, crowning virtue and genius on either side. There are four statues on the top of the column, the two on the right represent Nuno Alvarez Pereira and the Marquis of Pombal. On the left are Da Gama and Veriato. Two reclining figures symbolize the Tejo River and the Douro River.
The Arco da Rua Augusta on Augusta Street is a classic stone building in Lisbon, and is located in the famous Commercio Square in the city center. The Arco da Rua Augusta is supported by 6 columns, decorated with marble statues of various historical heroes, and the Portuguese national emblem in the middle. Passing through the Arco da Rua Augusta, visitors can see the Augusta Street with shops on both sides, which is bustling and noisy.
