Statue of Doctor Sousa Martins

Lisbon is full of unusual sights hidden away in unexpected places. In Campo dos Mártires da Pátria, for instance, the statue of Doctor Sousa Martins (1843-1897) stands surrounded by marble plaques and candles. The doctor, who never abandoned a hopeless case, has become a cult figure with Lisbonites and the Portuguese in general.
