Lisbon's Baixa area and in particular the block where Banco de Portugal's Head Office is located are revealed in this work that tells the story and recreates the life of the place from the Middle Ages to the present day, as a centre of the country's political power and economic and financial activity. Different designs for the Bank's Head Office and the current restoration of the Old Church of S. Julião are given special focus.
