  • Martins Sarmento (1833-1899) born in Guimarães and where he finished his days, he was a remarkable archaeologist, although he had the law degree. He devoted himself especially to the study of Citânia de Briteiros and Sabroso, and the archaeological artefacts found, are exhibited in the museum with his name. He was also a writer with the publication of several books. This monument has a relatively large size, but little worked on the base that sustains the bust.

  • Monument that honors Francisco Martins de Gouveia de Morais Sarmento, a notable Portuguese archaeologist and writer, born in 1833 and lived until 1899. The monument is a bronze bust placed on a granite base, erected in Jardim do Carmo that was once called "Largo Martins Sarmento" by being next to the house in which he passed away. The bust, authored by the sculptor and architect António Ferreira de Azevedo, disciple of the sculptor Teixeira Lopes, was inaugurated on June 11, 1933, during the commemoration of the 1st centenary of his birth. It is not "unmissable", but if you are passing by, stop to enjoy and who knows how to make your photo!
