As Portas da Cidade Jan 18, 2017
As Portas da Cidade (English: The City Gates) were built in the 18th century.

Some years ago these gates were in front of harbour and they were the point of entrance to the city from the sea.

Looking at the sea, and on the middle of the square, is the statue of Gonçalo Velho Cabral, the first Portuguese navigator to arrive at the first island to be discovered, that is to say, to Santa Maria Island.

The clock tower belongs to the main church - Igreja Matriz.
