  • The Foz Gardens stretch out along Avenida Montevideu and Avenida do Brasil, on the sea front of Porto. Going through these gardens, we can see that there are several points of interest that bring back memories of different historical and allegorical characters. At the beginning of Avenida de Montevideu, there is a fountain which was opened in 1931 and designed by the architect Manuel Marques. It is one of the rare examples of monumental fountains built in Porto in the 20th century. Also on Avenida Montevideo, we can find the "Homem do Leme' statue (Man of the Rudder) which was inaugurated in 1934 and that pays tribute to the men of the sea. On Avenida do Brasil, there is a statue of Luís de Camões, one of the most prominent figures of Portuguese culture from the Renaissance period, created by Irene Vilar. Also on Avenida Brasil, there is a sculpture from 1937 created by Henrique Moreira which represents a lifesaver in the middle of a storm. There are areas and equipment for practising sports.
