VIANA DU CASTELO. 2 Acçoes de 100$OO Esc. Cadauma. B/S Cat. 630 B. green, brown, red, buff. #5000. No 3589-90. In our opinion the prettiest of all Portuguese railroad scripophily and of the highest rarity. The wide and colourful border with flowers and plants shows coat-of-arms of Portugal as well as 3 building vignettes of the famous Diocesan Sanctuary of the Sagrado Coraçao de Jesus, a Christian shrine located on top of the hill of Santa Luzia in the city of Viana do Castelo. Since 1923, the sanctuary has been served by the Santa Luzia Elevator, a funicular of 650 meters (the longest in the country) with alevel difference of 160 meters. To the best of our knowledge a unique piece.
