Lisbon and the Tagus River
Pousada de Lisboa
Stop here at the corner of Rua Áurea and Rua do Arsenal, and look at the building ahead of you, on the right-hand corner. That's the new Lisbon Pousada. This wonderful historical hotel occupies the building that once belonged to the Ministry of Internal Affairs. It was here that Salazar, the man who ruled Portugal from 1926 to 1970, had his office.
Now let’s turn left and head to the plaza. Cross the road carefully and I'll meet you on the other side.
