Our passion for what’s new.
On the square in front of the Portuguese Discoveries of the XV and XVI centuries monument, there is an extraordinary 50 mts Ø compass rose paved in a 14mts wide planisphere decorated by mermaids, surreal fishes, caravels and even Neptune with a trident. In the surrounding pavement big waves break, the emblematic motif of the traditional Portuguese sidewalk. Wear this wonderful work of art in black and red limestone, by the architect Luís Cristino da Silva in 1960.
