Praša Dom Pedro IV

The Rossio Square, which is the way locals of Lisbon refer to the historical Praca de Dom Pedro IV (called this way in the honor of Pedro IV, both king of Portugal and Emperor of Brazil) in the Baixa district, is one of the most frequented public squares of Lisbon and, simultaneously, one of the most popular from a tourist point of view. It is centrally pegged out by the 27-meter high statue of Dom Pedro IV. The Rossio Train Station is also located in this square, dominating the Rossio Square with its neo-Manueline facade. There are also plenty of cafes, some of them dating back to the 18th or to the 19th century, where tourists and locals alike gather and relax, continuing, thus, the tradition according to which Rossio has been one of the most popular meeting places of Lisboners since the Middles Ages until now.
