    Traditional Lisbon lamps

    Pay wave

    Turn left on Rua Capelo.

    [2 SECOND PAUSE]

    Once you've turned the corner, stop and look at the beautiful balconies on your left, guarded by elegant iron rails waiting to be photographed. You’ll also see several examples of traditional Lisbon lamps, decorated with a ship guarded by two crows. There's one in between these two buildings, on the second floor. Can you see it?

    According to legend, the first king of Portugal, Dom Afonso Henriques discovered the site where Saint Vincent was buried. He decided to bring the saint’s body as a relic on a ship back to Lisbon. As the ship sailed, it was followed by two crows. Saint Vincent became Lisbon’s patron saint and the ship with two crows became the symbol of the city.

    When you've taken your photograph, and are ready to move on, continue walking straight all the way to the end of this road. I'll be back when you get to the t-junction.
