This Monument was Built to all the emigrants that left my country to get better lifes. in one side of the monument says:
''Aos Filhos desta terra, que foram
lutaram e voltaram, e aqueles que foram, lutaram,
e não voltaram, mas deles não esqueceremos! ''
which means :
'' To the Children of this land, that went, fought and came, and to the ones that went, fought but didn't come, but we remember them!''.
and in the other side says:
''E se mais mundo houvera, lá chegará'' by Camões - Lusiadas
which means '' and if there is more world, we will go''…
I found out this monument very touching. maybe you cannot see, but from this place you can see the ocean.
