This is not one of the prettier squares. It was the site of a battle, thus the name We took a taxi here to begin the yellow bus tour to avoid the confusion as you get closer to the heart of the city.

Like so many other squares in the city, this is one area where pedestrians can stop for a break and to admire the urban-old architecture around.

Batalha Square is an iconic square in Porto’s downtown.  According to the tradition/legend, the name Batalha comes from a 10th-century battle fought between the Moorish forces and the inhabitants of Porto, which were defeated. Nowadays it is a busy square, surrounded by restaurants and hotels, whose main points of interest are: São João National Theatre, Santo Ildefonso church, the old Batalha Cinema and D. Pedro V statue.

Praca da Batalha is a public space with no particular beauty apart from the fact there are several shops around it, including cafes and the like. There are office blocks and there are seats for people to have a rest. We came by here while walking around the area, going through and around the beautiful Sao Bento train station and some other attractions nearby. It is also interesting to walk through and look at the shops, particularly the souvenir shops and those selling items everyone would want to buy, as we did! Worth a visit, if you are in the vicinity.

Batalha means a battle and the square got its name from a big battle happening just here in the 10th century. Today Batalha Square is a busy square surrounded by restaurants and hotels. The most interesting sights are Sao Joao National Theatre, Santo Ildefonso church, the old Batalha Cinema, and D. Pedro V statue.
