Doña María II National Theater
The National Theater Doña María II (National Theater Dona Maria II, in Portuguese) was named the daughter of Don Pedro IV. The historic theater is one of the most prestigious places in Portugal and is located in Rossio Square, in the center of the city of Lisbon
The theater was built on the north side of Rossio Square on the site of the former Palace of Estaús, built around 1450 as accommodation for foreign and noble dignitaries visiting Lisbon. In the 16th century, when the Inquisition was installed in Portugal, the Estaus Palace became its headquarters. The palace survived the Lisbon earthquake of 1755, but was destroyed by a fire in 1836.
Thanks to the intense efforts of the romantic poet and playwright Almeida Garrett, it was decided to replace the old palace in a modern theater, dedicated to Queen Maria II of Portugal. The building was built between 1842 and 1846 in a neoclassical style designed by the Italian architect Fortunato Lodi.
The building is the best representative of the neoclassical architecture of Palladian influence in Lisbon. The main feature of the facade is a hexástilo portico with six reused Ionic columns of the convent of San Francisco de Lisboa and an auction
triangular. The tympanum of the pediment is decorated with a sculptural relief that shows Apollo and the Muses.
The pediment is crowned by a statue of Renaissance playwright Gil Vicente (c. 1464-c. 1536), considered the founder of the Portuguese theater. Ironically, some of Gil Vicente's works had been censored by the Portuguese Inquisition in the 16th century.
The interior of the theater was decorated by many important 19th-century Portuguese artists, but much of this decoration was lost in a fire in 1964. The theater had to be completely renovated and reopened in 1978.

Pedro IV Square
The Pedro IV square (in Portuguese Praça de D. Pedro IV), better known by its former name Rossio, has been the nerve center of Lisbon for several centuries. There have been trials, shows, festivals, military parades and cars of faith during the Inquisition.
Currently, political meetings take place and its sober Pombaline-style buildings are occupied by souvenir shops, jewelry stores and coffee shops. In the center is the statue of D. Pedro IV, the first emperor of independent Brazil. At its base, the four female figures are allegories of justice, wisdom, strength and moderation, qualities attributed to D. Pedro.
In the mid-nineteenth century the square was covered by black and white mosaics forming drawings, as is typical in the Portuguese capital. It was one of the first designs of this type to decorate the pavement of the city. On the north face of the square is the Doña María II National Theater, which was named after the daughter of D. Pedro, D. María II.
