    The statues

    Mafra - Portugal

    Mafra is said to have more than 450 statues. I spent there 9 months (yes... living INSIDE the monastery), and never found them! "Smashed" by the immense building, it's easy to miss the details.

    In a couple of recent visits I remenbered it, and could find two of them. Good! There are only four hundred and fity something left to see!

    My Statue

    I didn't know! I have a statue in Mafra. Close to the monastery, and celebrating its use as Infantry school, it was built a recent statue.

    I was in Infantry... I was in the school... I fought the war in Africa... look at the guy in the left! Where did they get my picture?
