Well maintained Monument

It very clean, looks like new, just minutes walk from Sao Bento station. Very busy area with lots of tourist shops and restaurants. Great for those holiday shots.

A magnificent photo opportunity that invites to read a bit more about Portuguese history. Best picture taken if you are on foot.

The Statue is dedicated to the King that liberated Brazil and fought his absolutist brother(which was married to his daughter, i.e. her uncle). Winning the war for the liberal side with the help of the Porto town, but losing the battle with tubercolosis DOM PEDRO IV gave his heart(literally) to the city of Porto!

Very accessible plaza, near many attractions (and food), visited by most tour groups, but even with the crowds would be a good rendezvous spot if your group splits up and needs to reconvene later in the afternoon. Several excellent outdoor cafes line this plaza so it's also good people watching spot. Maybe the Russian trumpet player will be serenading the... More

There are lots of various statues dotted around the city but this is one of the better ones. This is right in the middle of the square. Good photo opportunity.

We drove by this statue on a Blue Bus sightseeing tour and heard the historical story behind this statue and the whole square.

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.
