"A regal statue" Top 5 Page for this destination Praça Dom Pedro IV - Place du Rossio Tip by acemj

 
 

In the center of Praca do Comercio is this beautiful statue of Dom Jose I by Joaquim Machado de Castro. The bronze equestrian announces to all visitors that this square is important and gives it an air of dignity. I enjoyed sitting on a bench (there are only a few) and watching people walking briskly toward the metro and hurrying to catch trams or to go shopping on Rua Augusta. The Arco da Victoria is visible in this photo behind the statue and leads directly to Rua Augusta.
