Pátio da Galé features areas dedicated to food & beverage, leisure, culture and events. Situated in the west wing of Lisboa's most emblematic square, Pátio da Galé helps to promote the charm of the Portuguese capital as a tourist destination, presenting itself as an ideal place to experience the city.

Accessible via an elevator whose entrance is located on Rua Augusta, is the Miradouro do Arco da Rua Augusta, a viewpoint which offers a breathtaking view of the Terreiro do Paço, the Baixa Pombalina, the Cathedral, the Castle St George and the Tagus River.

Already in the lower plan, there are sculptures by Victor Bastos, representing the personalities the historical Viriathus, Nuno Álvares Pereira, Vasco da Gama and Marquês de Pombal.
