3 reviews of Caramuru Sculpture

history of the Caramuru monument

This monument is located in the historic Republic Square in the heart of Viana, directly across from the Costume Museum. It's actually a rectangular-shaped fountain with two sculptures in the center, made of bronze and representing the castaway Caramuru (a kind of Neptune) and a native Indian. The name Caramuru was the nickname of Diogo Álvares Correia, a brave explorer (born in Viana) who drowned in the Brasilian bay of All Saints in 1508, whose achievement is closely connected to the history of this country: As he was drowning, he took his gun and killed a bird, and the Indians who saw this attributed the action to divine powers.
