Adjacent to Rossio, the main square, and maybe because of that, this square was neglected until not many years ago.

In Pombal project it was the main market of the city, being demolished in the mid of 20th century.

Only by the end of the dictatorship the square received some investment and after being embellished with king João II's statue, now it shares with Rossio its Metro station and most of the commercial activity.
