After some years of restoration this February Pátio da Galé –Praça do Comércio- was reopened. The Galé is the original patio of the Royal Palace and the House of India, so it has an important heritage that dates from 1755 when an important earthquake destroyed the city and the Maquês de Pombal approved the project.
After the restoration Pátio da Galé has recovered all the glamour of previous ages and it’s an unforgettable visit for the tourist and also it’s an important meeting point for Lisbon’s citizens.
At Pátio da Galé you can find: restaurants, a gallery for exhibitions and events, an ice cream bar, the Lisbon Shop, and a tourist office. And the best of it all is that it’s just 15 minutes away walking from Equity Point Lisboa.
