Rossio (Lisbon)

This large square in the city centre of Lisbon is officially called Praca de Dom Pedro IV, receiving its name from the Portuguese king of the same name.

This square was already the center of the urban life in the Middle Ages. Even bull-fighting took place here. Today, the Rossio is surrounded by bars, terrace cafés, and small shops. At the edge of the Rossio, the Teatro Nacional Dona Maria II is located. In the center there is a marble column, on which the bronze sculpture Pedros IV is placed. The Praca da Figueira (place of the fig tree) is just around the corner from here.
