Geocache Description:


Arco do Cego is the name of a former terminal and transit location for some routes of Carris, the Lisbon bus and tram company. It occupies a block outlined by the following streets: Dona Filipa de Vilhena Str.; Duque d'Ávila Av.; Defensores de Chaves Av.; and João Crisóstomo Av. When the old Arco do Cego station closed, the block turned into a terminal for long course buses, and later it was transformed into a garden and car parking. Today only two buildings from the original group remains: a car park occupies the former tram station, and the building on the corner of the block is a Carris information and ticket centre (Mob Carris), close to the entrance to the Metro station named Saldanha. There is a project to install in the former tram park building, which is today a car park, a 24 hour study centre for the students of the universities of Lisbon.
