Avenida da Liberdade
A tourist hardly misses the Avenida da Liberdade, one of the city’s most active streets, considered the Champs-Elysées of Portugal. It was constructed between 1879 and 1886 and by that time it was called Passeio Público. Today it is a place which hosts many festivities and demonstrations, as well as offices, internationally renowned shops, and centenary trees as well. In Autumn, their leaves cover the cobblestones and you can enjoy this phenomenon on a bench or in one of the many terraces you can find between Marquês and Restauradores.
