Museu de Marinha (Maritime Museum)
With such maritime icons as Vasco de Gama and Bartolomeu Dias,
its no wonder that Portugal's Maritime Museum is one of the best in
Europe, evoking a sense of what it was like when the victorious
Portuguese dominated the high seas. Visitors can marvel at the
hundreds of models of 15th- to 19th-century sailing ships, merchant
marine vessels, fishing boats and pleasure boats as well as a full
range of Portuguese naval uniforms, including one worn at a
Mozambique military outpost in 1896.
