A twenty-three meter tall column with a statue of Dom Pedro IV graces the center of the square. Pedro IV, after whom the square is officially named, was king of Portugal and the first emperor of Brazil.

According to a persistent rumor the bronze statue was meant to portray emperor Maximilian of Mexico, however this is disputed by historians. At the foot of the column, which was installed here in 1870, are allegorical statues representing Justice, Courage, Restraint and Wisdom.
