It deserves a restoration that would give it back some of its former luster. Dedicated to the Archangel Saint-Michel (a relief is also dedicated to it on the column), it is said to be the work of the Italian architect and painter Niccolo Nasoni (1691-1773) who was very active in Portugal in the 18th century including frescoes of the loggia de la Porto Cathedral (1725) and the altarpiece at the Igreja de Santo Ildefonso (1745).
Old public fountain. Carved granite decoration is very old.
Centennial Space, with a lot of history.
