Why locals love it

There is a statue honoring Doctor Sousa Martins. A Doctor that worked intensely and in most cases, free of charge, mainly fighting against tuberculosis. Having such a tireless work with charity, trying to help the most disadvantaged; his figure assumed contours of a saint, which can be visible in the ex-votos placed around his statue.

Why you should visit it

This space is full of history, over the centuries; it has served as a bullring, flea market (Feira da Ladra) and a vegetable market. Also had a fountain powered by one of the distribution galleries of the Águas Livres Aqueduct.

Special tip
