Marquis of Pombal Square (Praça Marques do Pombal) Tours

Located in central Lisbon, the Marquis of Pombal Square is a focal point of the city, both geographically and historically. The statue serves to honor Sebastião José de Carvalho e Melo, the Marquis of Pombal, a statesman who is credited for rebuilding the city after the devastating 1755 earthquake. A bronze sculpture of the marquis stands tall on high-rising white stone platform, with a lion at his side. The marquis is facing toward the Baixa district, one of the areas most affected by the earthquake where he led reconstruction efforts.  

Several main avenues lead to Marquis of Pombal Square, forming a busy roundabout that circles the monument. The square is located in one of Lisbon’s main shopping districts, making it a nice sightseeing stop while hitting the shops and boutiques. This is a main point for transportation—with two metro lines, several bus lines, and is also the meeting point for most of Lisbon’s hop-on hop-off bus tours. 

On the northern end of the square, lies Eduardo VII Park. The park has carefully kept lawns and hedges on a hill that slopes upwards from the square, eventually giving way to a beautiful view, with the marquis’ statue in the foreground and downtown Lisbon and the Tagus River in the background.

Practical Info

Marquis of Pombal Square is located in the city center of Lisbon between Avenida da Liberdade and Eduardo VII Park. To reach the square, instead of dodging traffic, visitors can take one of several underground tunnels. The square is located at the Marquês de Pombal metro stop on the yellow and blue lines.
