The Monument to the Discoveries - Portugal

The monument is located on the banks of the Tagus River, Lisbon, and is decorated with motifs which call forth the age of great discovery by Portugal. The monument looks like the bow of a vessel and has 34 statues which decorate the two sides. The main statue represents Henry the Navigator, while other figures are important personalities who, one way or another, contributed to Portugal’s reputation in the age of discoveries: poets, explorers, navigators, crusaders, and mapmakers, with key figures like Vasco da Gama, Magellan, Felipa of Lancaster and Camoes. Its a very impressive monument.
