Tiradentes Square

In the center of the square is the oldest public statue in Rio de Janeiro. Inaugurated by Dom Pedro II in 1862, Dom Pedro I honor her as a symbol of the strength of the Empire. On a horse, and surrounded by indigenous allegories, the Emperor has in hand the "Manifesto to Friendly Nations," he announced to the world the independence of Brazil.

  6. That huge statue floating there with the blue sky as a backdrop is magnificent. It looks to be huge. I find the placement of the head of the horse looking towards the ground is so interesting. genie
