The column sits in the middle of a square. You will pass it a lot if you are walking the city. There are a lot of tours that start from here. The statue is pretty nice.

This is a 19th century construction of the King Pedro IV. It is located in a prominent spot, in Rossio Square, or as it is formally known, Praca Dom Pedro IV. The statue stands at the top of a very tall Corinthian type column which is also elaborately decorated at the lower part with some symbolic figures. The statue is the centrepiece of the large Square which also features a couple of lovely baroque type fountains. It's worth a look.

During my time in Lisbon, my hotel was located adjacent to Rossio Square. This was nice place to walk around before or after dinner to people watch and enjoy the beautiful weather. In the center of Rossio Square is large pillar that is a monument dedicated to the memory of King Pedro IV of Portugal. This marble statute was erected in 1870 and features a bronze statue of King Pedro IV in a General’s uniform atop the column. At the bottom of the monument are four female figures which I learned represent Justice, Wisdom, Strength, and Moderation. This is a nice monument to visit while in Rossio Square.

The place is well designed and surrounded by beautiful old buildings. The floor is artistic ... looks like sea waves with two colors: white stones and black stones. Many activities are held in this square making your tour in the city full with surprises.

This reminds me of Nelsons Column in Trafalgar Square in London as it is tall and as others have said - imposes over the rest of the area which I am sure that the designer planned for it to do
