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.
here [photoblog.com] you can see a bit of the view.

      these are awesome! The dark clouds on the first photo adds a lot of drama to the image.

      I really like the shots and the sentiment of this post, Ricky! Your edits are wonderful and your images are well-composed. I like the huge cross in the last one.

      Nice work, Ricky... I really like the edit of 2 and the perspective/ composition of 3!
