Geocache Description:


O conjunto escultório evocativo de António Nobre (1867-1900) insere-se num arranjo paisagístico envolvente da Boa Nova projetado em 1980 por Álvaro Siza Vieira, o mais conceituado e premiado arquiteto contemporâneo português. As esculturas que representam o poeta António Nobre e as suas musas inspiradoras são uma obra de 1974, da autoria do escultor Barata Feyo (1899-1980). António Nobre, um dos poetas portugueses mais notáveis do final do século XIX, passou largas temporadas em Leça da Palmeira, onde compôs uma parte significativa da sua obra poética. Cravada num dos rochedos da praia, uma placa de mármore, reproduzindo um dos seus sonetos que evoca a Boa Nova, materializa também uma homenagem ao poeta.

The sculptural ensemble dedicated do António Nobre (portuguese poet 1867-1900) is part of the landscape arrangement of Boa Nova, designed in 1980 by Álvaro Siza Vieira, the award-winning Portuguese architect (Pritzker 1992). The sculptures representing the poet António Nobre and his inspiring Muses were composed by the artist Barata Feyo (1899-1980). Nobre was one of the most notable Portuguese poets of the late 19th century and spent long periods of time in Leça da Palmeira, where he composed a significant part of his poetic work. The tribute to the poet is materialized by a marble plaque containing one of his sonnets about Boa Nova, pinned on a rock at the shore.
