  • In the center of downtown Lakes, the statue is designed by João Cutileiro. Date of 1972 and in honor of the city to the King, who gave him the status of town in 1573 and hence left in 1578 to the ill-fated expedition to Morocco, where he died at the battle of Alcácer Quibir. The your body hasn't been found, which gave rise to the "myth of the Sebastianism", which lasted in memory of the people, and was reflected in literature and philosophy in Portugal until today. Various speculations about the possibility of having come out alive of the battle and arrested in Venice, Florence, Naples, or, by Master penalty Aquilino, stuck in the Escorial for Philip II of Spain, first to Portugal, who would have gone to claim the Kingdom.

  • Even without knowing the history of the "rei don Sebastião", the sculptor João Cutileiro conveys the naivety of a boy King path of tragedy, for him and for his country. Whenever I see, year after year, leave me a bittersweet feeling, the inexperienced youth wanting to conquer the world

  • This statue stands in downtown Lagos and is well known and used as a reference point in the city. Is a very alternative version of the King. This statue is also known as dona Sebastioua, due to the female traits of the statue.
