General Description The Praça do Comércio is a large, harbour-facing square in Portugal's capital, Lisbon.

Facing, south, the Tagus (Tejo), the city square is still commonly known as Terreiro do Paço as hosted the Paços da Ribeira (Royal Ribeira Palace) until it was destroyed by the great 1755 Lisbon earthquake. After the earthquake, the square was completely remodeled as part of the rebuilding of the Pombaline Downtown, ordered by Sebastião José de Carvalho e Melo, 1st Marquis of Pombal, who was (chief) Minister of Portugal from 1750 to 1777, during the reign of Dom José I, King of Portugal.
