Praça do Rossio or in English, Rossio Square, is how usually its called the Praça de D. Pedro IV in Lisbon. It is one of the city main squares. It has been the stage of some relevant popular revolts and celebrations through centuries and actually still is one of the preferred meeting places both for Lisbon natives and tourists.
The statue is part of one of the two bronze fountains imported from France circa 1850 to adorn the Rossio square.
I’ve photographed these statues several times, on digital and on film, in the morning, in the afternoon, at night … Don’t really know why. Even so, I keep on doing it.
