Photographer's Note

As I told you before, Gois city had a fast economic decay when the gold found in the region was gone and many of its public buildings had a shortage of means while being built.
Here we can see the faade of the Cathedral of Saint Ann, its works begun in 1743, but the precarious works were so bad that in 1759 the roof fell down, beginning a series of reforms that had an end only in 1998.
As you can see during the final restoration a part of the building was left as it was during centuries. I presume the metal fountain is from the end of 19th century.

Como j disse antes, a Cidade de Gois teve um declnio econmico muito rpido quando o ouro que foi descoberto na regio acabou. Sendo assim, muitos dos prdios pblicos da cidade tiveram corte de verbas durante sua construo.
Vemos aqui a fachada da Catedral de Santa Ana, cujos trabalhos comearam em 1743, porm, fizeram obras to precrias que o telhado desabou em 1759 e depois disso se iniciou uma srie de reformas que s teve um fim em 1998.
Reparem que durante a restaurao final uma parte do prdio foi deixada como sempre esteve, inacabada.
A fonte com a moa feita em metal, presumo que seja uma obra do final do sculo 19.
