The Monument to the Bull, an 11-meter-high sculpture covered in bronze, pays homage to the bullfighting culture of the island of Terceira. It was designed by Terceira artist Renato Costa e Silva. It is made up of a set of three bulls, inserted into a cylinder, which are in different positions, which allow a free interpretation of the various forms of bullfighting. Built by the Tertúlia Tauromáquica Terceirense, the monument pays homage to the bull, cattle ranchers, capinhas, shepherds, bullfighting riders, bullfighters and all those who contribute to keeping the culture alive and intensely experienced. It is also a symbol of the resilience of the people of Terceira, in the victory that was achieved with the help of bulls or wild prayers, in the famous battle of Salga.
