Impressive statue of a King who was only King of Portugal for less than a month but first Emperor of Brazil for almost 10 years. It's located at the bottom end of the grand square, opposite the Intercontinental Palace Hotel. He is surrounded by very impressive buildings.

You could sit in this park area and while away the day. The statue is quite commanding and the area around the park is quite interesting. We enjoyed a bit of down time here while we were in Porto.

This is an elegant monument to a former king of Portugal at the end of the central square, Placa Liberdade, not far from Sao Bento train station. Its impressive and it dominates that end of the placa but that's about it really.

Dom Pedro IV of Portugal was also Dom Pedro I, Emporer of Brazil. He was only King of Portugal between April 26 and May 2, 1826, but his liberal politics ensured the end of absolute monarchy in Portugal. His history is far too complex to go into here, but I suggest that it's worth researching. The bronze statue of him on horseback sits on a stone base, on which are famous scenes regarding the man. The statue is located in Praça da Liberdade, where you can have a coffee or meal at the one of the numerous cafés and restaurants in the vicinity.
