Praça do Comércio
The Praça do Comércio, formerly Terreiro do Paço, is a square in the Baixa de Lisboa located along the Tagus River, in the area that was the site of the palace of the Kings of Portugal for about two centuries and is now partially occupied by some government departments. It is one of the largest squares in Europe, with about 36,000 m² (180m x 200m). It is considered a historical symbol of the political power and manifestation of the capital in Portugal. This symbology is generally associated with state centralism. In 1511, King D. Manuel I transferred his residence from the Castelo de São Jorge to this place by the river. The Paço da Ribeira, as well as its library of 70,000 volumes, were destroyed by the earthquake of 1755. In the reconstruction, coordinated by Eugénio dos Santos, the square became the fundamental element of the plan of the Marquês de Pombal.
