Avenida da Liberdade

Lisbon's main boulevard



Avenida da Liberdade


This boulevard, built in the 19th century in the style of the Champs-Elysees in Paris, is the main avenue of the city.
It runs north for a mile (1.6km), from Restauradores Square to Marquês de Pombal Square, and is more than 300 feet (90m) wide. Today, it still has a certain elegance, with fountains and café tables shaded by trees, as well as a cobblestone pavement decorated with abstract patterns.

A few of the original mansions have been preserved, and many are outstanding from an architectural standpoint. In the avenue is also the Monument to the Heroes of the Great War, a tribute to the 50,000 Portuguese soldiers who fought in World War I.

This is also the site of the city's grander hotels and designer shops, including names like Louis Vuitton, Prada, D&G, Tods, Burberry, among others.

Get to Avenida da Liberdade using Lisbon's metro or buses for free with the Lisboa Card.
