Lisbon Shore Excursions

Praca do Comercio doorstep attraction (easy walk or less than 5mile-8km taxi/bus ride from port) Praca do Comercio The royal palace stood on the spot occupied by the Praca do Comercio for over two centuries, until it was destroyed by the devastating earthquake of 1755. In the center of the square is a magnificent statue of King Jose I on a horse. On the north side of the square is the famous café, Café Martinho da Arcadia, a favourite of artists and poets for over 300 years.

At the top of R de Augusto Rosa, half-way up the hill, lies the Miradouro de Santa Luzia, one such place.
