The Portuguese Discoveries began with the Infant D. Henrique, with the conquest of the African coast, having elapsed during the reigns of D. João II, with the discovery of the maritime route to India, and of D. Manuel I, during which the overseas empire was already consolidated. This historical process made a decisive contribution to the knowledge of the world and the relationship between its many civilizations. With the Discoveries in the 15th century, Portugal begins the process of globalization from its capital, Lisbon.
With this itinerary, we propose the exploration of some monuments, institutions and places of the city of Lisbon associated with this period.
