Rossio, Lisbon

Praca Dom Pedro IV Square, better known as Rossio, is the main square in downtown Lisbon and a popular meeting place for locals.

Praca Dom Pedro IV Square, better known as Rossio, is the main square in downtown Lisbon and a popular meeting place for locals. An important square since the 13th century, it is surrounded by buildings from the 18th century erected after the devastating earthquake of 1755, and paved with Portuguese mosaic set in a wavy pattern of black basalt and white limestone. It has been the setting of several historical events from revolts and executions to bullfights and celebrations.

At the centre is the Column of Pedro IV, a 23 metre high Corinthian pedestal surmounted by a marble statue of King of Portugal Peter IV in military uniform and royal cloak, holding the Constitutional Charter of 1826 in his right hand. At the base of the column are 4 female allegorical figures of Justice, Prudence, Strength, and Temperance, along with garlands and shields of 16 major Portuguese cities. On either side of the Column are 2 bronze Baroque fountains that were imported from France. The monumental fountains feature sculptures of mermaids and mythical figures.

At the north end of the square is the Teatro Nacional D Maria, while all around are several cafes and restaurants. The best known are the Café Nicola, and Café Suiça.
