Praša Dom Pedro IV

Rossio square forms the bustling heart of downtown Lisbon. Several parts of the city converge here and the square is a popular meeting place. If you stay in Lisbon, even for a short time, chances are you'll pass here more than once.In 1889 two monumental Baroque fountains were installed on either side of the Monument to Pedro IV. The two identical fountains were were originally cast at the foundry in Val d'Osne, France. The sculptures embellishing the fountains - created by the French sculptors Mathurin Moreau and Michel Lienard - depict mythical figures. The fountains are especially beautiful at night when they are illuminated.
