Photographer's Note

The legend says that the mortal remains of S. Vicente, saint mártir Spanish executed in the year of 304, obtained for D. Afonso Enriques and buried in the Sé of Lisbon, in 1176, they had been brought in a bark watched for two crows, elements that currently are part of the shield of the city. In its homage a statue was raised, little greater of that the natural size, whose first studies had been carried through by Raul Xavier, in June of 1949. The ticket of the part to the definitive material, the rock, only occurred between 1965 and 1967, for the hands of its son, arq. Luis Xavier, who folloied this workmanship until being inaugurated in 25 of October of 1970, in the belvedere of the Doors of the Sun, located in the Plaza of the same name.
