Très jolie régate .. mais j'ai comme l'impression que la "conque sombre" ( moire ou bleu-marine ) va se tapper le phare en guise de prise de contact brutal avec les éléments "terrestres"

Default which soldiers?

Rui,

could you add a couple words - is this monument dedicated to something in particular, or just to all dead soldiers as a concept?

Default Re: which soldiers?

Dear Friend

Thank you for your question.
This monument was built in the 1980s and intends to honour all dead soldiers in Portuguese Armies, mainly those dead in WW I and those dead in African Liberation Wars in the 1960s and 70s. On the background wall, behind the monument, the names of dead soldiers are depicted ..

Kind regards

Rui Monteiro santos
