Photographer's Note

Built on the bank of River Tagus in 1960 to honor the 500th anniversary of the death of Prince Henry the Navigator. Designed in the shape of a caravel, on which Henry the Navigator, Vasco da Gama, Pedro Álvares Cabral - discoverer of Brazil - Fernão Magalhães - who crossed the Pacific in 1520 -, the writer Camões and many relevant heroes of Portuguese history are shown, the monument offers a fabulous view from the top. It also owns a multimedia itinerary through the history of Lisbon, as well as hosts temporary exhibitions and concerts.
