At nº 1, Eirexa Street, on the corner with Cabo da Vila square, we find this cornered coat of arms that is unique in the town. Of military style, it brings: 1º) a potent cross, which are weapons of the TEIXEIRA; 2nd) five fleur de lays flowers placed in a cross that could have been by Deza, ALDAO; 3º what seem to be five blackjacks put on stick and placed in a strip and 4º the trout of the GAIOSO. Crested with a tufted front helmet and ornamented with lambrequins and other figures. Coat of arms on a bracket supported by two rampant lions and superimposed on the cross of Santiago.

a sparkling lake, the dam of the Bibei River that reflects
the gray and beautiful mountain range skies like the
songs and accent of the country ".
