  Lisbon - Sousa Martins
by solopes

In my student days (so long ago!) I lived in a street called Oliveira Martins, but, frequently, the taxi drivers insisted in taking me to Sousa Martins st.

Who the hell would be that Sousa Martins?

Well, I discovered him later, in a discreet square of Lisbon, called Campo Martires da Patria, where people passes without time to look, and only in a free day we get time to stop and look around.

Sousa Martins was a doctor, pioneer against tuberculosis, and his success turned him in a saint, in most popular minds. His statue, facing a medicine school, is surrounded by marble plaques, each one as a remind of a miracle.

Stop and have a look! "Tons" of miracles!

Address: Campo Martires da Patria
Directions: Located throughout the city.
