Lisbon’s Les Champs-Elysees
Avenida da Liberdade - Avenue of Freedom - is one of the main arteries of the city, where the life of the city has a more vibrant energy. The wide avenue connects the Restauradores Square to the Marquês de Pombal Square, thus making communication between the historical centre of the city and the Avenidas Novas.
The avenue was originally built after the 1755 earthquake as the basis for Lisbon's urban reconstruction and reorganization plan and was later remodelled to resemble the avenues of Paris. With beautiful examples of classical Portuguese architecture, the avenue is still flanked by two emblematic corridors of trees, hidden fountains, unique patterns on the Portuguese sidewalk, kiosks with esplanades where one forgets that one is in one of the busiest avenues in the city.
Its scenic qualities, good restaurants and cafés, luxury stores, luxurious hotels, theatres and historic Pombaline buildings characterise the already considered the 35th most expensive avenue in the world.
Avenida da Liberdade offers Pombaline and neoclassical buildings hosting high ceiling apartments, many commercial properties and some of the most luxurious developments in the city, making it an oasis for investors.
