The Padrão Descobrimentos / Monument to the Discoveries is located on the Lisbon waterfront and  across the street from the Jerónimos Monastery.  The monument is beautiful – one must see it to appreciate its form and aesthetic accomplishment.

The female statue in the middle of the three represents Queen Phillipa of Lancaster.  Riveting, right?

See here for more images from Lisbon.

More to come.
