Praça do Rossio, Lisbon
With its rippling mosaic cobbles, large circular fountain, and towering column topped by a statue of Pedro IV, the solider king, Praça do Rossio is a striking reminder of Lisbon's grandiose history. A popular meeting point and the scene of many a protest and execution, the square is also home to the national theatre, two of Lisbon's best-known cafes and a distinctive Neo-Manueline railway station, which serves the Sintra region.
