Memorial, Cascais ~ Sunday # 15

This is a memorial to those from the town of Cascais, Portugal, who lost their lives in wars. I am embarrassed to admit that I don't know much about this memorial, maybe a Shutterchancer from Portugal will know more.

Join us for a week in Portugal ... we're taking a short break.

This is a good example, Ellie, of an out-of-the-ordinary memorial. I especially like that there are words inscribed in different places.

I hope your short break is everything you want it to be, if not more!

You can even see the detail on the white face, with the background somewhat light. Great pic.

My guess is that it will be like those 'unknown soldier' monuments. The wars listed are a lot, including WW1 and shortly thereafter the monument was erected. I must confess i didn't know that Portugal participated in WW1.
Nice catch Ellie, hope your'e having a good break smile
You really did love Portugal didn't you. smile I'll have to take a trip over there one day and I do love golf.

Lovely shot. It would have been nice to know more about the memorial... but simply watching the shot for a while gives a lot of hints.

Hope you had a great time!
