This is a rather ordinary statue, located in the somehow boring Figueira‬ square. You can easily miss this statue upon walking past the square.

An equestrian statue placed in Praca da Figueroa. Not very impressive, there are hundreds or even thousands of similar statues. Not a "must see" .

The King Joao I statue dominates the relatively compact Praça da Figueira in central Lisbon. It is an impressive statue but the square lacks the size and impressiveness found in the adjacent Rossio Square.

This is a nice statue of King Joao I in the middle of the square. King Joao ruled the kingdom of Portugal ~1400 and he was significant because he kept Portugal independent of Spain/Kingdom of Castile. He also started the Portuguese push to have colonies...More

The huge statue locates at Praca do Comercio and is a landmark for photo-taking and assembly point as well.

You can't miss it! This is the big statue in the middle of the Praca do Commercio and is very noble and important. You will take a photo, as it is required.

This huge square is dominated by the Statue of King Joao. The real attraction here is people watching and the view of the plaza and the Tagus River.

João is the equivalent of John. King João the First (11 April 1357–14 August 1433) ruled Portugal from 1385 until his death in 1433. Loyal subjects called “the Good” whereas Spaniards had a less complimentary word that TripAdvisor won’t print, and called into question the...More

Located in Praca da Figueira, is the statue of King João I. One of many monuments/statues within in Lisbon, we find you always appreciate them a little more if you understand the history. King John reigned 1357 to 1433, this grand monument was erected in...More

A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site,
Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply
"Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake
construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755
earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its
name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in
Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the
