Located at the end of Augusta Street in Lisbon, Rosio Square is a popular gathering place for Lisbon natives and tourists. When we visited the square, we just caught up with parts of the area being repaired. It was a little regrettable that we could not see the whole picture. The square is small in size. It is designed to imitate Paris Concorde Square and has a Portuguese gravel road representing Portuguese characteristics. The square has not only beautiful buildings, but also beautiful fountain landscape. In the center of the square stands a Pedro 4th century monument in memory of the king who renounced his throne and devoted his life to overthrowing Portuguese autocratic rule. Therefore, it is also known as Pedro IV Square.

On the side of Rossio Square, there is an old-fashioned dessert shop called Confeitaria Nacional. When they come to their home, they must order a cake called Blo-rei, which was first introduced from France to Portugal in 1829. Later, it becomes a Christmas cake for Portuguese people. There are walnuts, winter melon candy in the cake and outside the crisp skin. And syrup, the biggest feature is sweet, all the desserts in their family are snoring sweet. Shop furnishings, and even the way of operation are still staying in that early age, even the packaging paper used outside is cut out by the clerk himself with a large sheet of white paper. What I like most about Portugal is that they are not restoring the past, but that time has been solidifying.
