As Pontes de Frutuoso: O caso da Ribeira Grande, na Ilha de São Miguel

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Within the scope of my research to obtain a Doctorate degree from the University of the Azores with the work of Gaspar Frutuoso and some aspects of the military defense of the Azores archipelago to his time, the opportunity arose to develop some notes on civil architecture. Compared with the examples of military and ecclesiastical architectures which are historically studied historically, bridges in civil architecture are less well known. This work allowed to study the old bridges in the Ribeira Grande, in the island of São Miguel, in the work of that chronicler of century XVI
