Cais do Sodré square

Cais do Sodré

In fact this square is officially call Praça do Duque da Terceira but since the XVI century the people call it Cais do Sodré. Cais mean harbour and Sodré is the family name of an English family that had here their sea businesses. There are many places here in Lisbon where tradition names is stronger then the officially names. See more here, if you in the mood.

Traço muito apurado, excelente sentido de síntese e arrojada escolha de cores. Não desenhaste só o Cais do Sodré, mas sim O TEU Cais do Sodré. Dos melhores desenhos que vi teus até ao momento! QUEREMOS MAIS!!!!

Um abraço e até ao almoço de Sábado.
