King John II’s Square

King John II’s Square, rehabilitated in 2001, shows visitors various celebrations of the Portuguese Discoveries, such as the columns of the “five corners of the world”, the lake of the mermaid, several fountains in the shape of a globe and in particular a big sundial.
The name of the Square evokes the name of the king who ordered the construction of the Royal Customs, a building located nearby.
