JUSTE-AURÉLE MEISSONIER NEVER WENT TO BRAGA

But his book probably did find its way there. André Soares was the likely “architect” of this wonderful monstrosity, a four-legged granite beast of a fountain canopy sitting in the park behind the Bom Jesus Sanctuary. The Sanctuary itself is a recognizable wonder of the Baroque vernacular (which will get several posts to itself here) but this piece is a one-off, a folly in the park too scary to be repeated.
