Old street lamps in Tomar

There is a story about an old street lamp, written by the Danish author Hans Christian Andersen. It’s about an old street lamp which performed its duty for a long time in an old street, but is about to be discarded to be replaced by a more modern one. Well that doesn’t seem to happen in the historical areas of Tomar. Yes there are modern street lamps in more modern areas of the city, but not in the medieval part of the town.
