In the middle of the Liberty Square, you won't miss it! The place is quite nice and taking a good picture here is a must!

I'm not really sure why a statue gets to be classed as such a highly rated 'attraction'. This is really just a 'guy on a horse on a plinth' in Liberdade square. Take a photo, then move on. Sorry if that's some kind of sacrilege.

Great central place to meet for many of the free walking tours. Easy to find and near other major sites like the Sao Bento train station, city hall, and the old palace (now the Intercontinental hotel).

The focal point of the Placa da Libertad Square is the large bronze statue of the king, majestically mounted on his horse. The monument’s placement in the large open square, flanked by beautiful old buildings is worth seeing.

Nice plaza to stroll by and enjoy a coffee or a drink outside. There is a fountain close by. I saw photos of a working fountain, not working when we went.
