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?
