My guide shared some interesting tidbits about the history of the characters on the statue. The story of the marquiz and the king was truly a lesson in historical politics!

The whole Praça da Liberdade is a wonderful spot. This monument represents a very important part of the history of two counties, linked by history, culture and tradition: Brazil and Portugal. A great hommage to freedom of thouht and liberty.

This is an snagging square with a great mix of things to see within it. Bordered by hotels, restaurants shops and historic buildings it gives a great opportunity to explore and relax at the same time.

The D. Pedro square is not only beautiful and artistic but it is also that point of the city where you have a perfect view all around! You can see the beautiful town hall building, as well as the hole avenue, the Torre dos Clérigos and also a bit of the São Bento rail station. It has several restaurants and... More

Great place to get some pictures of the statue and square. The square has that paving you fin in all the streets and it is a good place to take picture of it here. Nice when lit up at night too.

This lovely statue watches over Rossio square from above. A bird would stand on the head of the statue almost always, which makes a great (and hilarious) photo-op.

With the special masonry dominating the Plaza this statue of the former Portuguese Head of State towers majestically above. From this point numerous attractions radiate by foot.
