Description

Eight marble status on low supports at the façade of the Colégio de Santo Antão-o-Novo, now the main building of the Hospital de São José. The statues were placed there in 1811 and were originally on the east tower of the church, built 1613-1653, which was destroyed at the 1755 earthquate. Obviously, four statues were lost.

Because most of the statues show damage and have lost the specific attributes, most of them could not be identified.
