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

Hello BC....

Nice to meet you...I like your blog (especially some of your pictures)

Keep up the fair work (that's a funny thing my father says!) :)

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).
