The statue in the square. since you asked, I found out that this is the "praca do comercio", or as some call it the "Black Horse Square." named after King Jose I indeed. It is part of the palace or Terreiro do Pa├žo that survived the 1755 earthquake that struck by the water.  Posted by Hello

What is that statue called? It looks really familiar. Was it in a movie set or do I remember it from art history class...

Good ole google. I had it confused with the Gatemelata (a Donatello sculpture...the artist not the ninja turtle).
