The oldest name on record for this square is Largo dos Curros, in reference to the bull-fights that once took place there. Later, in 1865, it began to be called Largo 7 de Abril and on November 19, 1889 it was renamed Praça da República, in honor of the recently founded Republic and its new form of government.
