Discoveries Monument

Across from Mosteiro dos Jeronimos is the Discoveries Monument. It was built on the north bank of the River Tagus in 1960 to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the death of Prince Henry the Navigator, who is depicted on the prow. The monument is a pleasant stroll across the gardens fronting the monastery, and through an underpass . This is actually a replica of another monument that was made for the Portuguese World Exhibition of 1940.
