My choice for today is one of the symbolic ships from the era of the Great Discoveries when Portughese sailors traveled all across the world, finding a new worlds.
Tomorrow I'll go in Malta for one week, hoping to discover a new world. See you!
The Navy Museum of Lisbon is dedicated to all aspects of the History of navigation in Portugal. The museum is administered by the Portuguese Navy and is located in the touristic district of Belém. It occupies a part of the neo-Manueline Western wing of the Jerónimos Monastery (together with the National Museum of Archaeology) as well as a modern annex built to the North of the monastery.
The history of the museum is deeply related to King Luís I (1838-1889), who was a lover of oceanographic studies and an accomplished navigator himself. He created in 1863 a collection of items related to the preservation of maritime history of Portugal, a collection that was enlarged in the following decades, culminating in the inauguration of the Maritime Museum in 1963 in its present location.
The exhibits include historical paintings, archaeological items and many scale models of ships used in Portugal since the 15th century. It is one of the most visited Portuguese museums.

J'aimerais beaucoup l'avoir dans mon salon. Je sais qu'il prendrait de la place mais il ferait un beau sujet de conversation. La lumière est bien gérée.

When I saw the sailing ship I immediately believed it would be the Santa Maria. It is not the case, but the replica is very similar. Pleasing POV even when the BG could be more blurred, but that is rather difficult in a museum. Well done

spero che tu vada a Malta con qualcosa di più confortevole :)
Bel modello, ma vedo anche tante altre cose interessanti all'interno.
Una buona proposta, in tema con la tua partenza, buona vacanza e buone foto.

It's a very nice small model of wood ship. It reminds us Portugal has a long history of sea exploring.

Portugal has a fine naval tradition, Daniel, and the age of Discovery this ship would be from was a wonderfully interesting period. You've done a nice job with the model here, and the light from the exhibit really accentuates the textures and colors nicely. Thanks!
