About Padrão dos Descobrimentos
In a prominent position on the right bank of the River Tagus, the original monument in perishable materials was erected in 1940 on the occasion of the Portuguese World Exhibition to honor the historical figures involved in the Portuguese Discoveries. The current replica, in concrete and stone, is later, having been inaugurated in 1960.
