This square, located in the heart of the historic center, is the ideal place to relax between walks in the city’s alleys and visits to points of interest that surround this garden.
Standing on top of a pedestal, stands the statue which gave this garden its name, and was inaugurated in 1900. The Infante Dom Henrique (1394-1460) was a noble navigator and important figure of the Age of the Portuguese Discoveries. He will have been born nearby, at Casa do Infante.
The Streets of Ferreira Borges, Infante D. Henrique, Mouzinho da Silveira and the Bolsa set the limits of this square which was previously an integral part of the fence of the Convent of St. Domingos.
The privileged location of this square allows amazing views of the surrounding emblematic buildings, such as the Stock Exchange Palace, the Ferreira Borges Market, St. Francis Church and the Parish Church of St. Nicholas.
