Shaded by the canopy, Avenida da Liberdade carries almost two centuries of name and history. Amongst the kiosk cafes, big hotels, and fancy restaurants, you will also want to jump into the many designer shops along this boulevard.
What can you see on Avenida da Liberdade?
Perhaps the most notable attraction is Avenida da Liberdade itself, but the avenue leads north to Marquês de Pombal Square set at the foot of Parque Eduardo VII. The walk up to this urban oasis is definitely worth it due to its view over the whizzing traffic to the blue line of the river.
This boulevard, built in the 19th century in the style of the Champs-Elysees in Paris, is the main avenue of the city, 1.6 kilometers long and 90 meters 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.
