Unusual monument
Oct 2018 • Couples
Monumento a Gil Vicente is quite an unusual monument and it seems to have been placed in an out of the way spot! It is on a sort of side street, on the footpath, outside some shops. A monument such as this, which is meant to celebrate an important personality should be in some open, more easily accessible and recognosable spot, like a public square or something similar! The monument honours Gil Vicente, a famous playwright born in Guimarães in the middle of the 15th century. It also honours 500 years of Portuguese Theatre. The monument is entitled "500 years of theatre" and features seven evocative masks of dramatic representation, displayed on two shelves. It is a little unusual, but obviously those "in the know" obviously think differently and better. Worth a look if you are passing by.
