Monumento a Dom Pedro IV is located on Liberdade Square. The statue on Portuguese King on horseback at the city center has its memorial purposes. Nearly all visitors will come to take photos around during their travel in Porto.

Monument to Dom Pedro is a very impressive statue in the main square of Porto. Looks good little up at night and more so in the sunshine.

You can not miss this as it is in the main area where people walk and a few walking tours go from. Enjoy it for its place in History.
