Avenida da Liberdade is one of the main avenues in the city of Lisbon , in Portuga l , which connects Praça dos Restauradores to Praça do Marquês de Pombal . About 90 m wide and 1100 m long, it has several lanes and wide sidewalks decorated with gardens and Portuguese pavement. Avenida da Liberdade and Praça dos Restauradores have their origins in the boulevard called Passeio Público , started in 1764, and created by the architect Reinaldo Manuel. Initially walled, the slope underwent major changes in the 1830s and 1840s by the architect Malaquias Ferreira Leal, who introduced a new arrangement of gardens and fountains, with waterfalls and allegorical statues representing the Tagus and Douro rivers . The currently existing avenue was built between 1879/1882 in the style of the Champs Elysees in Paris . The large tree-lined avenue became a center for processions, festivities and demonstrations. The avenue still retains its elegance, with magnificent fountains and terraces under the trees. Majestic, with 90 m of width and floors decorated with abstract patterns, it is now divided by ten traffic lanes that connect Praça dos Restauradores , in the south, to Praça do Marquês de Pombal , in the north. Some of the original mansions have been preserved, including the neoclassical Teatro Tivoli , with a 1920s kiosk outside. However, many of the Art Nouveau facades have given way to buildings occupied by offices, hotels or commercial complexes.
