Rossio Square is also known as Pedro IV Square located in Lisbon, Portugal. It is one of the main squares since the middle Ages. It is famous for bullfights and executions and a preferred meeting place of Lisbon natives... more and tourist. A statue of Pedro IV is built in the middle of the square. The Rossio has been a meeting place for people of Lisbon for centuries.  Some of the cafés and shops of the square date from the 18th century, like the Café Nicola, where poet Manuel Maria Barbosa du Bocage used to meet friends. The name "rossio" is roughly equivalent to the word "commons" in English, and refers to a commonly owned terrain.
