Lisbon is a city with some wonderful open spaces one of the grandest is the Praca do Comercio. It has wonderful buildings on three sides the fourth side of the square is open to face the river Tagus. This is one quarter of the Praca showing the elegant and quite classical covered arcades. The square and the buildings around it were designed by the Marquis of Pombal after the massive earthquake of 1755 that destroyed much of the centre of Lisbon
