Lisbon’s Les Champs-Elysees
Avenida da Liberdade is one of the city’s main arteries connecting Baixa (the downtown) from Praça dos Restauradores all the way up to magnificent roundabout Marquês de Pombal, where Lisbon’s uptown begins. Pombaline architectural heritage dates back to 1763 and was later remodelled to resemble the boulevards of Paris. Its long lanes and wide sidewalks invite passersby and luxury commerce, making it one of the prime areas of the city for shopping and fine eating still today. This area is flanked by beautiful tree colonnades, elegant cobblestone pavements, hidden little fountains, scattered cafes, and famous brands stores.
In terms of real estate, the Avenida offers Pombaline and neoclassical buildings hosting high ceiling apartments, many commercial properties and some of the most luxurious developments in the city, basically making it an oasis for investors.
