Fernando Machado Square – Placed in front of XV de Novembro Square, was the place of the first Public Market and Hercílio Luz bridge maquette that was used for the symbolic inauguration of the piece. It was on Fernando Machado Square where we could find Miramar, famous ship dock of the town and meeting point of the intellectual elite, disappearing with Baia Sul construction.
Recently the square passed through a repair that raised pillars that mark the place where the marine used to be. Beside with panels telling the story of the Miramar, the square keeps the statue of Colonel Fernando Machado, hero killed in 1868 at Itororá battle during the Paraguay War. Next to the Cidade de Florianopolis terminal.
