  • Teixeira Lopes (senior) is the author of this sculpture inaugurated in February 1866. With a monumental octagonal pedestal, it has bas-reliefs in four surfaces, with the main facing north and showing the symbols of religion. The surface facing west shows the symbols of industry; the surface facing south, the symbols of agriculture; and the eastern surface shows the symbols of the arts. All the surfaces have inscriptions. The octahedrals have four panels, over which one can see the coat of arms of Portugal, of Porto, and of Saxe-Coburgo-Gotha. The statue stands on top of the pedestal. The base, also octagonal, is set on four steps. Over the steps are four medallions with the inscription of the names of the main contributors. The monument is surrounded by a melted iron railing, interrupted by eight pilasters.
