At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

Everything is in place.

The Praça Don Pedro, also called the Rosio was the very heart of Lisbon in the Middle Ages. In times gone by, it was home to the convent of São Francisco, the Palace of Estaus and the hospital of Todos-os-Santos. But the earthquake of 1755 ravaged the square and its monuments.

Now redeveloped, the square is home to the National Theatre, a bronze statue of King Dom Pedro and many café terraces.

And according to legend, it is on this very square that the Carnation Revolution began, after a florist offered a bouquet of carnations to an insurgent soldier.
