Liberty avenue

Local name: Avenida da Liberdade

Aleja Wolności is one of the main streets of Lisbon. It is 1100 meters long and consists of two roadways separated by a green belt, with fountains and monuments. The street construction is a mixture of many styles. There are both beautifully decorated tenement houses from the turn of the 20th century as well as modern office and apartment buildings.

The avenue was marked out at the end of the 19th century in the place of parks. It was modeled on the famous Parisian boulevards. It quickly became a fashionable place where the middle class willingly stayed. The middle of the Avenue is a shaded boulevard lined with a two-colored stone mosaic arranged in geometric and floral patterns. There are benches along it.

Under the trees you can see several monuments, including the Monument to the Victims of World War I, the Monument to Simon Bolivar and the bust of Frederic Chopin. There are also several fountains, including stylized rock caves imitating springs. There are many fashionable shops of expensive brands at Aleja Wolności. There are also exclusive hotels and restaurants.
