A monument located right in the middle of a piazza, facing the Intercontinental hotel and south and from where everything worth visiting in Porto is some 15 min away. Take a picture and learn why Dom Pedro IV was so important to the Portuguese.

It's a nice city square in the city centre where the town hall is located with a monument. The view is nice on a sunny day and there are various different restaurants around it. I especial;ly like the Portuguese style tiles.

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.

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
