Long Description:
In Portugal the game was first made available in the 50's by Majora, a local games publisher. In 1961 there was a second edition and if the first release had the name translated to Portuguese (Monopólio) this 1961 edition had the original title: Monopoly.

From 2006 the board changed, with some new properties replacing old ones, for no apparent reason, and with Euros instead of the old Portuguese currency (Escudos).

This location, Praça da Liberdade, is quite in the center of the city and oddly, is bordered by another Monopoly location: Avenida dos Aliados. There is a vintage hotel there and some classic shops, a few of them from the 19th Century.
