Lisbon from the 117 EURO
Lisbon is an open-air museum that can be discovered in any season. At the beginning of the century. XVII, the most significant monument was the "Aqueduto das Águas Livres" (aqueduct for the supply of Lisbon with drinking water).
Following the 1755 earthquake, within the reconstruction plan, which was initiated by Prime Minister Marquês de Pombal, the commercial market (Praça do Comércio) was built. Later, in the neighborhood, were also built the Restauradores Square and the Santa Justa accessory (designed at the end of the 19th century by Mesnier du Ponsard).
At the end of the 19th century, the urbanization was extended not only to the area near the Tejo River, but also to the outside (the current Liberty Boulevard). In 1934 the Marquês de Pombal Square was built. The urbanization since the late twentieth century is marked by a special architecture, such as the Amoreiras Towers (1985, Tomás Taveira architect), Belém Cultural Center (inaugurated in 1991), Oriente Station (1998, Santiago Calatrava architect), Vasco da Gama Tower and Oceanarium (1998, architect Peter Chermayeff).
