  • The Duke of Ribeira (Deocleciano Monteiro) worked as a boatman in the River Douro and became the most famous figure in the Ribeira of Porto, being paid various tributes. The square next to the D. Luís I Bridge was named after him, with a tombstone having been laid, with a sculpture by José Rodrigues. Raised to the status of public figure, the Duke cohabited with different Portuguese and foreign figures, and his autograph book contained the signatures of England's Quenn Elizabeth II, Portuguese presidents Ramalho Eanes and Mário Soares, and of the president of Mozambique Samora Machel, among many others.
