"Rossio" Praça Dom Pedro IV - Place du Rossio Tip by rcsparty

 
 

This square has been the stage for bullfights, festivals, parades and even the burning of heretics during the inquisition. In the center is a statue of Dom Pedro IV, the first emperor of Brazil. The square was paved with patterned mosaics in the mid 19th century, of which, only the central section survives today. This is another great square to just sit an relax.
