Joao de Araujo Correia's statue

This bronze statue of João de Araújo Correia can be seen in his hometown Peso da Régua (junction of Avenida do Douro and Avenida do Ovar).


The monument was erected in 1998 next to the Douro River to honour the memory of one of the most distinguished Portuguese Doctors with an extensive work in Medicine and Literature. On one side we can see the names of the various personalities present at the inauguration of this monument, among which the presence of the then President of the Republic of Portugal, Doctor Jorge Sampaio.


On the other side of the base we can read the signature of Portuguese sculptor Laureano Ribatua.
