Everything is in place.

The Praça Don Pedro, also called the Rosio was the very heart of Lisbon in the Middle Ages. In times gone by, it was home to the convent of São Francisco, the Palace of Estaus and the hospital of Todos-os-Santos. But the earthquake of 1755 ravaged the square and its monuments.

Now redeveloped, the square is home to the National Theatre, a bronze statue of King Dom Pedro and many café terraces.

And according to legend, it is on this very square that the Carnation Revolution began, after a florist offered a bouquet of carnations to an insurgent soldier.
