Description

Along both sides of the Avenida da Liberdade south of the Rua das Pretas are two meandering 'rivers' both beginning at a fountain showing a river god, the rivers Tagus (east) and Douro (west). These allegorical sculptures were made by Alexandre Gomes for the Campo de Santana fountain (never built).
