This statue has a troubled history. It has been moved and even turned around depending on the prevailing mood of the locals. The reason for this is that it reminds people of their colonial past. Attitudes now seem to have moderated, and once again the statue is on the sea shore facing out to sea.

A modern statue next to Torre de Belem. The nice thing about the statue is its location on fishermen's beach where there are many colourful boats and in front of 19th C English-built trading houses. It is very photogenic in its surroundings.

This bronze statue commemorates the discoverer of the Cape Verde islands. It's situated on the seafront very close to the Torre do Belem looking out to sea. Worth a look and a photo opportunity.
