Portugal-34B - Monument of Discoveries

PLEASE, NO invitations or self promotions, THEY WILL BE DELETED. My photos are FREE to use, just give me credit and it would be nice if you let me know, thanks.

 

Monument of the Discoveries was built in 1960 to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the death of Henry the Navigator (1394-1460), one of the great Portuguese Discoverers.

 

Statues on both sides of the monument are of other discoverers, clergy, and other important people of Portugal.

 

This is from film days....
