"Restauradores Square is a public square in the city of Lisbon, Portugal. It is located at the southeast end of Avenida da Liberdade, near Rossio square.

 

The square is dedicated to the restoration of the independence of Portugal in 1640, after 60 years of Spanish domination.

 

The obelisk in the middle of the square, inaugurated in 1886, carries the names and dates of the battles fought during the Portuguese Restoration War, in 1640.

 

The Monument to the Restorers is located in the center of the square."
