Description

This arch was once located at Rua de São Bento, where is was originally built in 1758, as part of an aqueduct. After beeing dismantled in 1938, it stood that way for 50 years. In 1998 it was put together again, simply as an isolated monument.

Very nice.

What do the poems say?

Hi Marvin and thanks for asking. I'm not able to translate poetry, something which is an art by itself. As far as I know, none of these poems has an english translation. All of them tell something about a specific date in portuguese recent history, the 25th of April, 1974, on which nearly 50 years of dictatorship where overturned (more details can be seen on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carnation_Revolution). As such, the poems talk about freedom, a sense of awakening in freedom, hope in a free future and so on.
