CONTEMPORARY
20th century

Salgueiro Maia is a widely regarded son of this town. The inhabitants of Castelo de Vide, his comerades, friends and family wished to preserve the memory of the Man of the 25 April 1974 Revolution. To honor him, three monuments were erected ? two in the historical centre and a third in a space for leisure in a modern area.

The first monument dates from 1994 and it was founded during the celebration of the 20st year after the 25 April Revolution, it is situated at the castle. In 2004 it was placed a memorial stone by the house where this militair was born: Rua de Santo Amaro, to celebrate his 60th year of birth. The latest monument, a bust, was unveiled in 2005 in Parque 25 de Abril.
