  Statue of Goncelo Velho Cabral in Ponta Delgada.
by cachaseiro

Favorite thing: Goncalo Velho Cabral was the person who made the first settlement in Sao Miguel.
He was a munk from the order of Christ, who under the their leader Henry the navigator set sails to explore the new world.
These days he is honored with a statue on the main square in Ponta Delgada where he stands right in from of the city gate and looks out towards the sea.
