In the center of the square, a monument to the poet Eça de Queirós (1845-1900) was unveiled in 1903. The sculptor António Teixeira Lopes, inspired by the words of the romantic poet" about the nakedness of truth and the transparent shell of imagination"(Sobre a nudez da Verdade o manto diáfano da Fantasia) in the form of an allegory-" naked truth", depicted Keixera's wife.

The quintel Palace itself is not in my frame due to the light conditions, but from the facade of the Palace you can see a wonderful perspective of Rua Alecrim descending to the river.

And in the Palace itself, to the right of the main portal, my attention was drawn to an antique shop.
