Statue of King Jose 1 on a horse marching to the water. Located in a plaza with restaurants spread around. Walking away inland are tons of shops. Worth a look if it’s a nice day and you are in the mood for a stroll.

Can't miss it as it's the big statue in the middle of the commercial square justo off the water. Magnificent noble buildings all around. The arch, and lots of food.

This is a lovely statue, which we visited again, after a couple of years. This time, however, the statue was located in the middle of the Eurovillage during the Eurovision Song Contest week, which should've been interesting for the statue, in case it was a...More

I don’t know if it’s a rule, but it seems that any European plaza worth naming has at least one stature. The King Jose I Statue fulfills that requirement very well. Impressive plaza; impressive statute. Very much worth seeing in Lisbon.

Nothing special...just an equestrian statue, placed in the middle of the biggest square of Lisbon. There are hundreds of similar statues. A lot of nice terrace restaurants around. Also, at one of the border of the square are Lisbon Story Centre and Museum of Beer.

This statue is the first statue of a Portuguese King made in 1775. It was placed in the center of this plaza dedicated to shipping commerce and faces the river. Although why a statue dedicated to king and shipping commerce should be on a horse...More

He faces the waterfront right in front of the large arch. You cannot miss it if you are walking in the square.

This is an impressive statue in the square. Whilst we were there there was a photoshoot around it. Lots of people taking selfies there.

The statue of the Portuguese King Joseph I (Dom José I) dominates Lisbon's Commercial Plaza (Praça do Comércio). It is a fine statue and is the focal point of the square.

A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site,
Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply
"Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake
construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755
earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its
name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in
