Close to the Gulbenkian Museum, opposite the Palacio de Palhave (residence of the Spanish ambassador), in the Prace Espanha, stands an arch. No information is given about it at the site, but it does have a poem on one side related to the 1974 revolution.
After research, I discovered that this arch originally stood outside the Palacio de Sao Bento (built 1598-1615), a monastery that is now the Portuguese Parliament.
The arch was dismantled in 1938, and the pieces moved to the gardens of the Royal Palace, where it stayed until moved to its current site and put back together.
