Aerial view of central Lisbon and the Tagus River in the distance. Most noticeable is the large circle at the bottom left with a tall statue in the middle. This statue represents the Marquis of Pombal (1699-1782) best known for having been the person in charge of the reconstruction of Lisbon following the devastating earthquake of 1755. The large avenue that originates at the circle and is oriented towards the river is Avenida da Liberdade, Lisbon's equivalent to Les Champs-Élysées.
