Nice Square ! Mar 06, 2011
The official name of the square is Dom Pedro IV Square, but everyone knows it as Rossio. It marks the very center of the city, a lively space known for its wave-patterned mosaic pavements which have been reproduced everywhere from within Portugal to the beaches of Rio de Janeiro and the former Portuguese colony of Macao in China.

It is faced by the neoclassical Dona Maria II Theater and a couple of legendary cafés, with the most attractive being the art deco Nicola.

In the center are two baroque fountains and a monumental pedestal holding a statue of King Pedro IV.

Some photos available to have a look !

Great fountains and some nice benches in the shade Sep 14, 2010
Next stop on a walking tour that starts at the Praça dos Restauradores would be the square Rossio. This large square is located south from the National Theater and is surrounded by restaurants and terraces. It has a couple of great fountains and some nice benches in the shade.

From Rossio you’ll automatically end up in a shopping area that is a mixture between souvenir shops and regular shops that sell clothing, shoes and electronic gadgets. Strolling through these streets will bring you to the Elevador do Carmo, a neo gothic elevator.
