"It is not a panorama that the eyes contemplate, it is an excess of nature, terraces that are passed from titanic men to climb the slopes, volumes, colors and modulations that no sculptor, painter or musician can translate, horizons dilated beyond the plausible thresholds of vision.
A virginal universe, as if it had just been born, and already etern al for harmony, for serenity, for silence that not even the river dare to break, or to slip furtively behind the hills, now groggily deep in the background to reflect his own astonishment: a geological poem, absolute beauty."
Miguel Torga in "Diário XII
