#330 - Rainy days II

"Avenida da Republica is one of the main avenues of Lisbon, geared towards north-south axis, which is the nerve of New Avenues.

Ressano Garcia Avenue called to the establishment of the Republic, this artery extends from the Plaza Duque de Saldanha to Entrecampos Square, where there are several important buildings, especially headquarters or offices of large companies and some trade. The number of residents is negligible.

It is along this avenue that is the Plaza de Toros do Campo Pequeno, who reoppened to the public in 2006. It is also next to the railway station of her Entrecampos, one of the most widely used of the Portuguese capital, right next to the Old People's Fair that for a long time, was the largest amusement park in Portugal.

The Avenue of the Republic is served by three stations, Metro: Saldanha, Campo Pequeno and Entrecampos, and several rows of the bus rails." [*]
