Both Lisbon’s residents and visitors may now visit the Augusta Street Arch, recently rehabilitated and granting access to a belvedere which allows for a unique view of the city.
The new belvedere is accessible by a lift whose entrance is located in Augusta Street.
During the opening ceremony the Mayor of Lisbon visited the monument with the company of Mr Mario Machado, from Tourism of Lisbon, and Mr Jose Blanco, from World Monuments Fund Portugal.
To celebrate such event a Multimedia Show created by Nuno Maya and Carole Purnelle and projected upon the Monument itself will take place daily, until August 18th, by 9.30 pm, 10.30 pm and 11.30 pm.
The monument will be open to the public in a daily schedule from 9am through 7pm, with the entrance costing €2.5 per person, with free entrance for children under the age of 5.
