  • The sculpture is quite striking because of the dimensions and the place where it is. You have one of the markets of the city along with the Palacio de la Bolsa, which is beautiful. The environment is unbeatable, a few steps from the riverbank.

  • Henry the Navigator (1394-1460), also known as Infante Dom Henrique, Prince of Portugal, is for the Portuguese population, the most important figure at the beginning of European colonial expansion throughout the world and is, as such, the symbol of the great geographical discoveries. Henry the Navigator was not a navigator in the strict sense (unlike his brother Pierre) but supported by his patronage the great exploration missions carried out by Portugal. The bronze statue of the prince (work of the sculptor Tomas Costa to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the birth of the Infanta in 1894; inaugurated in 1900) which sits atop its huge pedestal in the center of the square that bears his name (Jardim do Infante Dom Henrique) , is therefore quite justified, surrounded that it is one of the most beautiful monuments of Porto, including the Igreja Sao Francisco with all its gold sculptures.
