  • Massive monument commemorating the allied victory over Napoleon and the loss of ~1 million in the Peninsula War  more »
  • In the center of the large square-roundabout Mouzinho de Alburquerque, next to the House of Music, stands this impressive monument dedicated to the heroes of what the Portuguese call the Peninsular War, from 1808 to 1814. Something like our Revolutionary War. A huge column crowned by a lion representing the flag of England, prevailing on the eagle, symbol of the Napoleonic Empire. In relief, around the base, war scenes between the contenders and a woman, with a sword in one hand and a national flag in the other, depicting Victory leading the people.
