Commerce Square, Lisbon
Lisbon

Commerce Square, better know by locals as Palace Square, is located on the northern shore of the River Tagus and was once the maritime gateway to Lisbon. The area was home to the Royal Riberia Palace palace, hence the alternative name, which was destroyed by a massive earthquake in 1755.
