  • Vimara Peres (820 to 873) was the first Count of Portucale, founded a village near Braga. Repopulated the region between the Douro and Minho resuming the area from the Muslims. For the "whole of the work", he received this statue to immortalize it, at the entrance of the cathedral complex.

  • It is a equestrian statue standing on the north side of the cathedral. It is a statue of Vimara Perez (820-873), the military commander of the Kingdom of Asturia, in the northwestern Iberian Peninsula from the 8th to 11th centuries. It is said that it is famous for fighting off the Islamic forces who excel in bravery and move north. Holding the flag in one hand, the figure that is quite brave has become wandering.

  • The statue fits well in front of the cathedral.
  • A prominent statue but the significance gets “lost” next to the imposing church....
