  • Praça do Rossio or Praça Dom Pedro IV, was in the Roman period a racetrack. Today has two monumental fountains of great architectural beauty, highlighted by the beautiful sculptures of mythological figures, in cast iron, of French influence, which were added to the square in 1889, one on each side of the statue of Dom Pedro IV.

  • Rossio Square is the popular name of the Pedro IV Square in the city of Lisbon, in Portugal. It is located in the Pombaline Downtown of Lisbon, not doubt, a beautiful place to visit.
  • Big open area, fountains, cafes all around. Around the corner from the train.
  • The floor of the square has the floor mosaic of a conceptual design that represent the waves of the sea. For my taste, it is one of the most representative of the identity of the port of Lisbon.
