Escadaria da Rua da Madeira

There was a passage below the street level in this area. The Madeira Street (“wood” street won this name thanks to the fact that there used to be a warehouse of wood for construction in that same place. In this area there used to exist the “Porta dos Carros”, one of the big city entrances, that disappeared when the walls of the city were destroyed.
