Praça do Comercio

The square is a triumphal arch built in 1785. It is surrounded on three sides by buildings with a large porch. At the center of the wide central pavement stands the imposing statue of King José I. The square, where once stood the Royal Palace was rebuilt by the Marquis of Pombal after the earthquake.
