The square is named after Gerald the Fearless, the Christian knight who led a surprise attack and re-took Evora from the Moors in 1165. The square was the market during the Moorish period and until recently hosted a cattle market.
Gerald is featured in Evora’s coat of arms: his horse is trampling over the heads of slain Moors.
