In 1927, Lindbergh was the first man to be one day in New York and the following in Paris, crossing the Atlantic non stop on the Spirit of St Louis aircraft. Before, a lot of people tried to cross and five years earlier, two Portuguese, Gago Coutinho and Sacadura Cabral, made a not so famous but epic crossing of the Atlantic on an open seaplane, a Fairey. Actually, not one but three Faireys. As they couldn't carry enough fuel for the entire crossing, they made several stops.
Instead of the two hour historical tour, you can go for the swimming program. Same prices!
Henry the Navigator(1394-1460), the Portuguese prince who played the main role on Portuguese discoveries. Madeira, Azores and Cape Verde were discovered on his time. Around the monument, on both sides, are navigators and other men who took part on the Portuguese discoveries. Sorry! on the right side of the monument, the second figure from left is Queen Filipa of Lancastre, the prince's mother.
An old power plant that provided electricity to Lisbon until 1972, now a museum that shows how coal or gas were turned into electricity.
As on 1755 earthquake the Royal Palace collapsed, in Commerce Square, King D. Jose decided to build a wooden palace on the safest place in town, where he lived for the rest of his life.
