Avenida Cândido Madureira in the City of Tomar in Portugal

At the end of this avenue in Tomar, which in Portuguese is called Avenida Cândido Madureira, the Seven Hills Forest begins, and it is also here where the statue of Henry the Navigator was erected. At this avenue you can also find the main Tourist Building, with vestiges of neo-renaissance style, despite the fact that it was built in the 20th century. For example, the tiles and sculptures of this building are replicas of the the 15th and 16th centuries. At Avenida Cândido Madureira, you can also find the House of Ceilings (Casa dos Tectos) which serves as the headquarters of the Professional School of Tomar. They teach Information Technology, Restoration and Graphic Arts. When I was a kid I used to live right next door to Casa dos Tectos.
