White Lisbon The Lisbon City Council Square



White Lisbon. The home of the Lisbon Town Council a dignified square where the light can make stone seem weightless.

Let us begin at the The Lisbon Town Council buildings at Praca do Concelho near Praca Comercio and the Post Office where the King was assassinated in 1908. The intense light here gives the stone of the central spiral a gravity defying lightness. An 18th Century construction made from a single stone, nowadays accompanied in the square by more modern playful pieces.

The town hall building itself was designed by Domingos Parente and contains impressive paintings and a wonderful staircase.

Let us go now down Rua Arsenal where there is an intense smell of dried fish towards Rua Alecrim with it's trendy shops to the transport center of downtown Lisbon. Cais Sodre.
