This coat of arms was probably part of the portal in the wall that existed in the former Largo da Sé (Cathedral) do Porto and that was demolished in the early 20th century to make way for the present Terreiro da Sé. The arms are of Dom Gonçalo de Morais (Bishop of Porto between 1602 and 1617) and consist of a divided shield: I. Morais, II. Borges. Overall an ordeal. A Calvary Cross is featured. Surmounted by an ecclesiastical hat with laces and three orders of tassels per side.
