Castelo Branco, Portugal. Jardim do Paço (the palace gardens). Among boxwood lanes, there are several granite statues. Varied imagery blend in the atmosphere, reminding visitors of the transitoriness of life and the contemplative nature of the garden: the four parts of the World then known (Europe, Asia, Africa and the West Indies), the signs of the Zodiac, the cyclical character of the seasons and the months of the year, the two pillars of the universe according to the Ancient Greeks -Air and Fire, the Four Last Things (Death, Judgement, Heaven and Hell), the Theological Virtues (Faith, Hope and Charity), the Moral Virtues (Prudence, Justice, Temperance and Fortitude). The big lake, surmounted by a waterfall, by which stand the statues of Moses, Saint Ann and the Samaritan, stands for one more element of the Universe - Water. From this platform can be reached one other, on a lower level, surrounded by the Stairs of the Apostles - which contain all the symbolism of life and death - and the Stairs of the Kings, from D. Afonso Henriques to D. José.
