Monument to the Discoveries (Padrão do Descobrimentos)

 

Having Cottinelli Telmo as its creator and Leopoldo de Ameida as its sculptor, it was first erected in 1940 in an ephemeral manner being then integrated in the Portuguese World Exhibition of that time. In1960 to mark the 500 years of the death of Infante D Henrique, (Henry The Navigator), The Monument to the Discoveries is rebuilt in concrete and rose- tinted Leiria stone masonry and the sculptures in Sintra limestone masonry. In addition to the magnificent visual impact of its facade, The Monument evokes the Portuguese overseas expansion, as well as the enormity of the work of Infante D Henrique (Henry the Navigator); carrying as well the mission to promote the idea of Discovery as part of the Portuguese culture and that is why, beyond being a unique viewpoint site to visit in the city, it is worth to discover its interior and the various different activities that the monument holds in it, from exhibitions, to documentaries and much more.
