At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

Once upon a time there were discoveries.

When we talk about the history of Portugal, we can't possibly forget its great discoveries and its sailors who set out to conquer the new world.

The Monument to the Discoveries (Padrão dos Descobrimentos), created by Cottinelli Telmo and Leopoldo de Almeida was erected for the first time in 1940, then rebuilt in 1960 to mark the 500th anniversary of the death of King Dom Alfonso Henriques.

With its height of 50 meters, it offers a breathtaking view over Lisbon and the Tagus. And now it is home to an auditorium and two exhibition halls.
