Prince Henry the Navigator and friends

I was really hoping I would see a memorial like this when I came to Portugal and was a bit disappointed to find only a statue of a fat king in the main square. However, we took a taxi to Belem on the Sunday morning and sure enough, here it was, Henry the Navigator looking out to see at the start of the great age of European discoveries of the rest of the world. Even better than how I had imagined it might be!
